May Open Event

Lansdowne, Bournemouth and North Road, Poole

Thursday, 22 May 2014, 4 - 8pm


If you haven’t had the chance to visit Bournemouth & Poole College before, this is a great opportunity to come and join us on Thursday, 22 May, 4pm-8pm, at either The Lansdowne or North Road sites.  It doesn’t matter if you are a prospective student who hasn’t yet made an application to one of our Degree courses, or HNC/HNDs, or someone who has already applied and are holding an offer, but would value some further information.  Either way, this event is  your chance to:

  •  view our campus and teaching facilities
  •  meet many of our academic and support staff
  •  talk informally to lecturers
  •  ask questions about your chosen subject
  •  discuss options if you haven’t yet decided
  •  appreciate the location 

Then why not visit our May Open Event and gather further information on one of the following courses:

  • Access to Higher Education Diploma
  • FdA/FdSc/FdEng Foundation Degree
  • BSc (Top-up)

Should you wish to visit there are no formal booking instructions.  If you have an idea of the type of course you have in mind – just turn up at the venue for that particular course. Course venues can be found by visiting:

The good news is that you still have time to apply and we are here to help.  Please give the Higher Education Unit a call on 01202 205180 should you like some further information or email:

About Us

The Bournemouth & Poole College works with partner universities to offer a wide range of full and part- time Higher Education level qualifications, including the popular vocationally based Foundation degrees. Full time students normally do a work placement as part of their Foundation degree.

Students on the full time courses come from all over the country, from Europe and from further abroad. The courses are also highly beneficial to students, who may prefer to study closer to home, saving on accommodation and other student loans, or for mature students, who may have missed their opportunity for university when younger and are now seeking to upgrade or diversify their qualifications.

Our portfolio of courses now also means that you can progress right through further to Higher Education/Degree level with The Bournemouth & Poole College, giving you the added security and benefits of studying with us.

As with all learning at The College, our students are well supported, and our Higher Education team will be happy to give you advice and guidance about college HE provision, including Access to HE and UCAS applications.

In a reciprocal arrangement, all students studying on HE courses at The College will also be entitled to use many of the facilities and resources offered by the partner university.
