Welcome Day

Thurs 29 June 2023

What is the Welcome Day?

This special event is for students planning to start at Nescot this autumn term. You'll spend an enjoyable morning with other students on your course and your tutors, and do some fun practical activities that give you a flavour of what it's like to be a student on your course. We'll also give you a free lunch while enjoying some live music. Your visit will end around 1.30pm. You don't need to bring anything with you, except for a bottle of water, and any extra snacks you'd like.

Timetable for the day

All students will do a practical session of around 2 hours. The start time of your sessions depends on which subject you've applied for, please check the email we have sent you. If a parent or guardian is meeting you afterwards, please arrange to meet them outside the Skills Park.

When do I need to arrive?

You should have received an email with your arrival time by the 13th June. If you haven't received it by 13th June, please check your Junk folder or make sure you are looking at the e-mail address that you applied with.
