Open Events

Our Open Events give you the perfect opportunity to chat to leturers about our exciting range of courses. It's also a great opportunity to have a look around our fantastic facilities, get a taste of college life and find out what makes Petroc a great place to study.

Whether you want to study for qualifications or learn new skills, we will support you every step of the way!

We hope to be able to welcome you onto site during our autumn event dates, but due to the current situation this will be confirmed closer to the time. Don't worry though - we will still make sure you receive all the information you'll need through our virtual events.
