Open Days are a great way to explore the College, meet staff and students, and get a feel for what it's like to be a student at Bishop Burton, before you have to make any serious decisions. You can also use the time to ask any important questions you have, and if you like the place, you can even have an interview to secure a place on the course you want to do (providing you secure the right grades). You can book on to the open days or you can turn up on the day - details on how to book can be found below.
