Year 11 Half Term College Taster Day - 20/02/2017

Monday, February 20, 2017

Do you fancy trying something a bit different this half term?

Then why not have a break from your revision and daytime TV and come along to our exciting half term taster event for Year 11 applicants.

The event is a great opportunity for you to get a real taste of life as a student here at East Durham College and meet our fantastic lecturers, so you’ll have no worries about starting your course in September.

You will take part in course-related sessions within the curriculum area you have applied for. These will be interesting, enjoyable and help you to develop new skills - alongside other prospective students just like you. That way you can meet some of the other people you are likely to be classmates with when you start college for real.

You can take part in taster sessions in -
