Open and Study Days

Open Days

St Peter's will be participating in the University Open day to be held on Friday 16 September 2016. 

The College will be open to drop-in visitors between 10am and 5pm, and there will be plenty of opportunity to meet with current students, who will also be leading tours of the College. Stop by the College to listen to live music (performed by our current students), while you enjoy some light refreshments that will be available throughout the day. 

All events during the day are drop-in only - there's no need to book a place.

A full programme of events will be published closer to the date.

For those who are unable to attend an open day, visits at other times can be arranged. Potential applicants with specific questions are also welcome to contact the Tutor for Admissions by email.
