Bonfire night has come and gone and now it’s time to start thinking about Christmas and all those parties and social gatherings you have got planned.

You have already seen the college prospectus so you might be thinking, ‘Why do I need to go to an open event?’ Even if you know what you want to do, we always recommend coming along to see for yourself so you can get an idea at first-hand what college is really like.
