Strode College prepares for higher education open evening

Strode College is opening its doors to future students on June 16, from 5.30pm until 8.30pm to tour the facilities. This year due to the pandemic Strode College is taking bookings for guided tours to present their Adult and Higher Education Courses as well as Apprenticeship courses for school leavers.

Higher education courses are essential for anyone wanting to progress their careers, retrain for a different role, become more knowledgeable about a particular subject or take up a new hobby and meet new people.

Adults can study for a variety of recognised qualifications. These include professionally recognised industry standard qualifications such as AAT Accounting as well as vocational Diplomas, higher education, English and Maths. Adults can study different university level programmes at Strode, including a BA (Hons) and BSc (Hons) Degrees, Foundation Degrees, Higher National Diplomas (HND), Higher National Certificates (HNC), higher level professional qualifications and Higher Apprenticeships.

Strode also offers pre-degree courses for those who would like to study at a higher level in the future, but have not gained the relevant qualifications. There is also an Essential Digital Skills Centre which has been successfully delivering flexible learning IT programmes to adults of all abilities for many years. 

For everyone’s safety this event is consisting of small socially distanced groups of no more than six people including the guide on a 25-minute tour with staff to ask questions.
