What to expect

At the open day you can get a feel for our friendly and creative environment. The course leader will tell you about the course and how it will help you to grow as an artist, the fantastic support we offer, and the new friends you will make whilst studying.

Our student ambassadors will take you on a tour of the studios, workshops and facilities, feel free to ask them about any aspect of College life, they will be happy to help.

The open day is quite structured and we recommend that you arrive 15 minutes before it is due to start so you do not miss any information. It will last approximately one and a half hours.


Our Extended Diploma open days are held in our Vernon Street building, see our visitor guide for details on how to find us. Please note we don’t have car parking at College, details of the closest available car parks will be sent out prior to the open day.

Attending with guests

You are welcome to bring two guests with you to the open day, we kindly ask you to bring no more than that due to limited space in our studios. You don’t need to reserve a place for your guests.
