College Tours

We strive to host as many Campus Tours as possible, but due to high-demand, spaces become fully booked extremely quickly. We strongly encourage you to attend our summer Open Evenings to ensure you can visit the college before making an application for study.

Campus Tours are held between October - December each year, during the college day. Unfortunately, due to the demands of the Admissions process, and events for our current students, we are unable to hold tours outside the Autumn term. Booking for Campus Tours will open early in the new academic year.
