A Bishop Burton Open Day

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.

Further Education Open Days

Our Further Education Open Days are 'drop-ins' and are aimed at Years 10 and 11 (and anyone older if they didnt have any formal training after high school). At the open days, you'll have the chance to:

  • Speak to the tutors about specific courses
  • Have a detailed tour of our facilities, based on your subject preference
  • Look at our on-site student accommodation
  • Speak to our support staff about bursaries, additional learning support and our information and guidance co-ordinator
  • Have an interview to secure your place for September 2016

Degree Information Open Days

Our Degree Information Days are aimed at people looking to explore Higher Education - foundation degrees, BSc and BA programmes, and even Masters programmes! These start at a set time, so make sure you arrive in time for the welcome talk. At them, you'll be able to:

  • Hear from our Assistant Principal for Higher Education on why Bishop Burton could be the place for you
  • Explore our campus and its facilities
  • Take a specialist tour based on your area of interest
  • Visit our student accommodation and see the quality of our on-campus rooms

  • Find out what additional learning support may be available and how to be assessed for additional support
  • Speak to our Student Services team about Student Finance, UCAS application and scholarship and bursary programmes offered by the College.  

So what are you waiting for? Come along to our next Open Day and take the first steps towards an exciting career!
