Karen Dobson, Principal and Chief Executive, said: "The aim of our open events is to provide school leavers with information on the full range of options available, so that they can make an informed choice about their future studies. We'll have expert staff on hand throughout the evening to help young people get advice to ensure they apply for the course that's right for them."
