November Open Evenings (for 2022 entry)
WEDNESDAY 10th & THURSDAY 11th NOVEMBER 2021
The Open Evenings represent the start of our admissions advice and guidance cycle for entry in September 2022. We hope that you will be able to attend one of the evenings in-person, and that you find it informative and helpful in supporting your decision-making.
For September 2022 entry our online application system will open here just prior to the events, so you can start your application after your visit.
Timings / bookings
We are pleased to announce that our Open Evenings will take place in person this year, giving students the opportunity to see our campus before starting their applications.
We would be grateful if you could use the booking system to ensure that attendees are well spread out across the two nights. Where possible, we would like students to come with just one parent / carer to help reduce crowding, though we understand this will not be practical in all cases.
The available time slots are as follows:
- Wednesday 10th November 17:00-18:30
- Wednesday 10th November 19:00-20:30
- Thursday 11th November 17:00 – 18:30
- Thursday 11th November 19:00 – 20:30
Aims of the Evening
By attending one of our Open Evenings you will be able to:
- Discover the college at your own pace and look at the facilities in subject areas and across the college as a whole
- Find out about specific subjects and speak with our teachers.
- Raise any general questions about the college and/or the admissions process. Staff will be available in the refectory and in the main quad.
- Collect a prospectus which includes a list of all our subjects for 2022 entry. The online version is also available here
Before you attend
The points below are aimed at encouraging students to think about the most important questions when deciding where and what to study. We hope this will be useful for you to think about before you attend:
- What are your favourite subjects at school?
- Why do you enjoy these subjects (content, skills, style of subject, teaching)?
- What are you interested in and what do you like doing (both in and out of school)?
- Do you already have any career ideas (based on work experience, careers advice and your own interests)?
- Please read the ‘Choosing your study programme’ section on page 17 of our prospectus. The online version is available here.
- Which subjects at Collyer’s look like they match your needs and interests?
- List the subjects that look interesting, but you are not certain about what they involve. You can visit those subjects at the Open Evening.
- What are the entry requirements for the subjects that you are interested in?
Please be aware that parking is limited at the College. As such you may need to find alternative parking in the local area. The nearest pay and display option is The Pavilions In The Park on Hurst Road.
