Open Days


Our Open Days are interactive events where you can tour the College, chat to our tutors and visit the classrooms and workshops where you could be studying. You can also meet our students and see some of their work on display.

A SERC Open Day is a chance for prospective students and their parents to learn more about what the College has to offer. You will get the chance to speak to expert lecturers, and funding and careers advisors are also available for students who are undecided about what direction is right for them or unsure what courses to consider.

The Full-Time and Part-Time Open Days are held in Bangor, Downpatrick, Lisburn and Newtownards. There are also secondary Open Days in Ballynahinch, Holywood and Newcastle throughout the year.

The event is designed to showcase the opportunities offered by the College and to open students’ minds to the huge variety of career possibilities at SERC. As well as finding out what courses are available, looking around the facilities and meeting lecturers, visitors will also be able to apply online in our Learning Resource Centre.
