Leicester College to host summer 2019 open day


Leicester College is to open its campuses across the city to students making decisions about their post-16 education. The further education college will be open to new students from 3-8pm on Thursday 27 June 2019.

The open day is a chance for students, their family and friends, to find out more about the college and its range of post-16 courses, look around the three campuses and see the facilities, as well as talk to tutors and current students.
