Online Open Days

In line with government advice we have not been running on-campus open days, but you can still find out everything you need to know about studying at SERC. Our events have moved online, and our next programme is planned for 9-10 March 2021, when you will be able to engage with SERC staff to find out more about the options available to you.

As the situation with Covid-19 continues, we can assure you that we are totally committed to offering the best and most productive learning experience possible, whilst safeguarding the health of students and staff. During lockdown we successfully moved #onlineandopenforbusiness and have been available to support students and applicants as they navigate the challenges presented by the pandemic.

What do I do next?

At our online open days on 9 and 10 March, you will be able to put your questions to lecturers from the areas and subjects which interest you through live Q&As. There are sessions hosted by each school at SERC, as well as events discussing Traineeships and Apprenticeships and events from our support services where you can find out more about our pastoral care and financial advice teams. These live, interactive webinars will show why you’re better off at SERC, whether you are a school leaver, returning to education or looking to develop skills in a new area.

Before the March open days, do explore the courses on offer at SERC, browse our online prospectuses and check out the webinars from previous online open days. You can also explore our campuses below and get an idea of life at SERC through the video.
