Your VIP backstage pass

After you have registered, your VIP pass will be sent out in the post to you a week before the open day. It will tell you which site to report to – either Summer Row or Richmond House (on Newhall Street).

The pass gives you and your guests access to:

  • A tour of our facilities and complimentary refreshments
  • Demonstrations from our students
  • Advice and information on study support, transport costs, English & maths qualifications and careers

You can apply to join a course at the open day. To do so, you will need to bring the following if possible:

Getting around
