Ashford College Open Day Tips

Coming to Open Day? Here are some top tips to get the most out of the evening!

Pre-register before you arrive:

By pre-registering before you arrive, we will know what you want to get out of Open Day, and also be able to point you in the right direction when you arrive! (You can register on the day upon arrival if you don't pre-register.)


Take your time: 

Our Open Days are normally 3 hours, so there is plenty of time for you to explore our college and our pathways! Whether you are interested in 1 subject or 10, you can walk around college in your own time, and with Principal's Talks happening at 5pm and 6pm, there is an opportunity for you to do everything we have to offer on the night!


Get involved:

Lots of our pathways will be hosting interactive taster sessions on the night. This is your chance to see some of the work that you will be doing in college, and you can get a feel for the subjects you are really interested in.


Ask lots of questions:

No question is too big or too small at our Open Day and asking questions will help you make the right decisions for your future. Our team are more than happy to help along every step of the way.


Be aware of parking: 

There is no parking on site at the moment due to the building works of Phase 2. There are car parks around the town (some of which are free after certain times) such as Elwick Place, Dover Place and Vicarage Lane.


Ask about our 19+ courses:

If you are coming along to support a potential student in their post 16 education journey, why not have a look at our adult courses? We run part-time and short courses throughout the year for those 19+,and all of our full-time courses can be done by 19+ students too!


Get help from our E-Hub Team:

During Open Day, our E-Hub team will be upstairs on the 2nd floor ready to help you with any questions about the application process. They can even help you make an application if you have decided that Ashford College is for you! Simply ask and someone will be happy to help you. 


Have fun!

Most importantly, have fun! Don't stress about the future as our team can help you in anyway they can - just enjoy looking round Ashford College and seeing all the exciting things you could do in the future.


We hope to see you at our next Open Day - but if you don't know when they are or want more information about what can happen on the day - check out our Open Day page!
