You can also fill your water bottles in the refectory, Library building 1st and 2nd floor, and ground floor Cowley sports hall

    Aims of the Evening

    By attending our Open Evening 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 2023 entry.

    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 current 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?

    Parking

    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.
