We know there can be a lot to think about, so we have answered some of the most asked questions about Open Evenings here for you.

Will I have the chance to chat to Tutors?


The purpose of these Open Evenings is so you can meet Tutors and staff face-to-face and ask any questions.

Is there parking in the College grounds?


There is plenty of free parking on Campus for Open Evenings. Enter the car park from the Vision Park side of the campus and follow the road around to the main car park. See the bottom of the page for our full address and postcode.

I can’t make it to any of the Open Evenings – what should I do?

Do not worry. We have plenty of options available.

You could take part in one of our online Burnley College Virtual Experiences. Where you can look around, explore and find out more – all without leaving your own home.

Here to Help


Our School Liaison Team is here to offer you independent advice and guidance.

We won’t push you down a certain route after GCSEs or insist you come to Burnley College Sixth Form Centre (although we hope that you’ll share our vision for your future and recognise just why we’re the number one College in the country).
