Open Day

On 24 August 2023, we are holding an Open Day at our Pencoed Campus where you can find out about all our courses.

Our discovery events also include stand-alone campus tours. Tours are held on the campus of study for your area of interest and are tailored specifically towards it, giving you a clear idea of where your classes will be held and both the facilities and specialist spaces you’ll have access to.

Campus tours

Join us on one of our campus tours. We offer over 20 different tours, all of which are focused on a specific subject area.
