Guests will have the opportunity to ask questions of curriculum staff, find out which courses best suit their interests and qualifications, and find out more about the numerous articulation routes to university.

Carolyn Laird, Assistant Principal of Learning & Teaching, said: “New College Lanarkshire is proud to offer more than 500 courses ranging from Foundation Apprenticeships to degrees, alongside flexible study patterns that extend from evening study to full-time.

“It can be quite overwhelming for school-leavers to decide which route to take, so our Open Days aim to help those who attend make informed career choices and offer suggestions for course options that perhaps haven’t already been considered.

“We look forward to welcoming everyone to our Open Days to learn more about our tremendous facilities and exciting study opportunities.”
