Furness College is throwing open the doors to its two main campuses this month with representatives from Oxbridge heading to Barrow to talk to students about their options.
The college will hold two open evenings to showcase its courses, starting with the sixth form campus at Rating Lane on Wednesday (10th November).
Staff from Oxford and Cambridge universities will be at the first open evening to speak about entry options after A Levels and CTECs, particularly for degrees in arts, humanities or social science subjects. Information will also be available about Barrow Sixth Form’s Honours programme in partnership with Lancaster University.
A week later, on Wednesday 17th November, visitors will be able to tour the world-class £47million Channelside campus to find out about the range of professional and technical courses post-GCSE, including a new T Level in Engineering and Manufacturing. Both events run from 5pm to 8pm.
Principal and Chief Executive of Furness College Andrew Wren encouraged people to register for the events and take the opportunity to see first-hand the college’s state-of-the-art facilities.
“Our Open Evenings are for anyone from Year 10 and Year 11 pupils through to adults who want to enhance their career prospects,” he said. “It is a chance to meet our specialist tutors and learners from all our curriculum areas will be on hand to give expert advice on the full-time and part-time courses and apprenticeships on offer.”
“We have the biggest range of courses in Cumbria, so we know there is a place for every learner at Furness College and a programme to help them achieve their own career aspirations.”
