Experience Day 2018

  • Date Tue 03 Jul 2018
  • Time 9:30 am -
    3:00 pm
  • Location Leicester College, Abbey Park, Freemen's Park and St Margaret's Campuses.

Leicester College Experience Day is the chance for prospective full-time students, who are new to the College and attended a Welcome Event by 11 May 2018 (you must have an active application with the College to attend), to get a taste of what it is really like.

The Experience Day – on Tuesday 3 July – will allow you to spend a day with the tutors who teach on your chosen course, take part in practical activities, and give you the opportunity to get to know other students who want to study the same subject as you.

Registration is from 8.30am to 9.30am. Please arrive in time to register by 9.30am so that you can get to your curriculum area ready for the start of the event.

You will have a half an hour lunch break during the day and we encourage you to bring a packed lunch as we anticipate that it will be very busy, or you will be able to purchase food in one of our refectories on the day.

Please dress appropriately for any practical sessions which you may be taking part in. If you need safety clothing or equipment this will be provided.

Remember that Experience Day is just for our new students. Please do not bring your friends or family members with you on the day as they won’t be able to take part in the day.

If you arrive on the day without a pre-booking you may not be able to take part in the event. If you arrive late you may not be able to participate in the day.

As well as finding out more about your chosen subject, specialist staff will be on hand to provide advice and information about English and maths, careers and employability, and welfare.
