The College of West Anglia

Open days

Whether you have decided on a course, or are just investigating your options, our open days provide an ideal opportunity for you to see exactly what the College of West Anglia has to offer.

They are held twice a year – in March and November. You can meet tutors, find out more about our courses, and discover for yourself the atmosphere of our well-established and highly supportive college where students are encouraged to become mature and independent learners. With high success rates that are consistently improving, we are a great choice – providing a positive and rewarding experience in a lively and friendly learning environment.


If you want to visit our campus we have virtual tours online which you can see here.

We have a Higher Education Veterinary Nursing Open Day on 9th June at the Cambridge campus. 

If you would prefer to come in and visit one of our campuses, we would be happy to give you a guided tour of the facilities. You can book a tour here.

What can I do at an open day?

Whether you’ve already applied or have no idea what you want to study yet, our open days are perfect for you! Tutors will also be on hand to explain in depth about courses and our student services team will also be there to offer advice on transport, finance, and more.

Make your way to the ground floor of the Tower Block on our King’s Lynn campus or main reception at our Wisbech and Cambridge campuses where you will be greeted by our friendly staff. Here you will be checked in (if you have not registered, you will be asked to complete a registration card) and can collect your information guide for the event. Student ambassadors will be on hand to escort visitors around the site.

Each subject will be represented; you are free to walk around and get information for the subjects that you are interested in. Course tutors will be available so you can have a chat and ask any questions about the specific courses. You can also enjoy some refreshments in the cafe at each campus.

Our student services advisors will be on hand to answer all of your questions, such as whether you might be eligible for financial support, how to get to college from your home and how to apply for a place on a course. And if you’re ready to apply? We have staff on hand to assist you in applying on the day, or you can take the information away with you and apply online when you’re ready.
