With pressures on GCSE students tougher than ever - with exams looming and big decisions to be made on your future - you can get a much better idea of what college is like by coming along to one of our open days.
At Sandwell College we are passionate about further education and are here to help you get to the top of your chosen career, so this is your chance to explore and see what’s on at Sandwell.
We have created an open event for you with plenty of memorable must-do experiences as you continue on your journey to enrolment.
We’re the FE College of the Year (Education Awards 2019) and we’re here to lighten your load and help you organise your future.
We spoke to some of our students and asked them to share why they liked studying at Sandwell College so much:
- Fashion student Samantha Mutumbu is now studying Fashion Communication and Promotion at Nottingham Trent University. She says: “I liked being able to express myself on the course, meeting new people and socialising. I loved being in the college fashion show and photoshoots.”
- Art & Design student Gisela Mensah-Fawry, who is now at the University of Kent studying Drama & Art History, says: “My courses prepared me for my future and my teachers helped me to achieve my goals. One of the greatest things I have experienced in life was to attend a college where I have received quality education.”
- Performing Arts student Aimee Davies is now studying an Acting degree at the University of Bedfordshire. She says: “The tutors help you get what you want out of the course and they are honest with your progress.”
- Construction student Jamie Archer-Collins says: “I enjoy the practical aspect of my course. The teachers are friendly and easy to get along with.”
So whether you’re searching for the perfect course or apprenticeship for you, or wanting to get all the essential information you’ll need to support you with your college application and be prepared for student life this academic year, book your place now for our open days on Thursday 5 (4-7pm) and Saturday 7 March (11am-3pm) at sandwell.ac.uk/opendays
