Unlock your future - visit SERC

Our next open evening will be held on Wednesday, 09 March at our Bangor, Downpatrick, Lisburn and Newtownards campuses, to showcase our full-time courses, including traineeships and the apprenticeship opportunities provided at SERC.

You’ll be able to meet tutors to discuss courses and speak to careers advisors to explore your options and consider all the different ways SERC can help you to unlock the future you want.

We can talk you through the applications and admissions process and help you look at your goals and how to achieve them through a course at SERC.

You’ll also have the chance to see the state-of-the-art facilities on our campuses and find out more about our superb support services, pastoral care and Students’ Union.
