Experience college life at our Open Evenings

  • Experience college life at our Open Evenings

Find out more about what it’s like to be a student at Furness College when we throw our doors open for our annual open evenings in November.

Our vibrant college campuses will be showcasing the biggest choice of courses in Cumbria with a programme to help everyone reach their dream career.


Study options range from A Levels at the specialist sixth form on Rating Lane to BTECs, apprenticeships and university education at the £47m world-class Channelside campus.


Pupils, parents and members of the public are invited to attend our events where you will be able to speak with our expert tutors and current students to find out first-hand why our state-of-the-art college should be your next move.


Visitors can tour the facilities at both campuses. Our Rating Lane Sixth Form Campus houses the Centre of Excellence for Art & Design where students can progress right through to an HND and our Channelside Campus incorporates the Advanced Manufacturing and Technical Centre, which was recently named as the BBC's Building of the Decade (Cumbria & Isle of Man).


Open Evenings take place at Barrow Sixth Form College on Wednesday 14th November and the Channelside campus on Wednesday 28th November, both from 5pm – 8pm.
