@LeicesterColl City campuses to welcome prospective students on 22-24 June 2021

Leicester College is to host its first in-person event of 2021 when it welcomes prospective students to its campuses across the city*. The further education college will be open to new students between 4-8pm from Tuesday 22 to Thursday 24 June 2021.

Verity Hancock, Principal and CEO of Leicester College said:

“We’re delighted to be able to welcome prospective students to our campuses in person. Whether they are making decisions following GCSEs, A Levels or BTECs, or if they are returning to learning, the open event is an important opportunity to discover the range of courses and apprenticeships on offer at our unique college.”

The open event is a chance for students, their family and friends, to find out more about the college and its range of post-16 courses, look around the three campuses and view the facilities, as well as talk to tutors and current students.

To open up the campuses to visitors safely, one campus will be open on each day of the event with limited visitor numbers and pre-bookable time slots which can be booked online.

The College Apprenticeship Team will also be on-site to discuss opportunities. If an area is already fully booked, students can book a campus tour in the summer months.
