Open Days

St Peter's will be participating in the University Open days to be held on Friday 15 September 2017. 

The College will be open to drop-in visitors between 9am 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.
