What To Expect At the College Experience Night
As the name suggests, this night is all about you actually experiencing college for the first time!
On the night, students can attend a one hour session in the course area they're interested in. They'll get to directly see the area they'll be studying in, interact with our lecturers, meet other students also interested in the course and get a real flavour for what life as an East Durham College student is really like!
While the students are off experiencing college, parents and carers will be well looked after too! Our team will be running a presentation where they'll tell you all about the campus, student life, finances, bus travel and more, making it an ideal way to answer any questions you might have.
There will be time after the session for students to ask our lecturers any questions they may have.
Which Course Areas Are Available At This Event?
At this particular event, lecturers from the following courses will be available:
