Fife College is throwing its doors open for a series of Open Days this month (28-30 March).

Hosted at the College’s Dunfermline, Kirkcaldy and Glenrothes campuses, the events will offer an opportunity to find out more about 400 courses, in over 40 different subject areas, that will start in August.

Open to anyone considering coming to college for further or higher qualifications, skills training or to undertake an apprenticeship, the events will also feature several ‘taster sessions’ and demonstrations.

Examples of ‘taster sessions’ on offer will include virtual reality equipment demonstrations, cocktail-making sessions, science experiments and e-sports tournaments.

The events, which are part of College Development Network’s nationwide ‘Big College Open Week’, will also offer an opportunity to explore the campuses, including classrooms, labs and industry-standard workshops.

Staff will also be on hand to help answer questions on all aspects of student support, from funding and applications to the wide range of support measures the College has put in place, in response to the cost-of-living crisis, to make coming to college affordable.

Fife College Vice Principal Dorothee Leslie said:

“Our Open Days are a fantastic opportunity to get a real feel for the courses on offer here at Fife College.

“From the choice to study full-time or part-time, to work-based learning and degree-level progression opportunities, there are a wide variety of ways to study the 40 subject areas offered at our campuses across Fife.

“Whether you are leaving school this coming summer or looking for further qualifications to change career or enhance employment opportunities, I would urge you to join us at one of our events this month and find out more about how the college could be the perfect next step.”

Wendy Grindle, Head of Marketing and Development at CDN, said:

“We are really excited to be launching the very first Big College Open Week. It’s all part of the Choose College campaign and aims to highlight the incredible opportunities colleges offer.

“The week will showcase the support and expertise that has helped countless pupils, school leavers, career changers, career developers, employers, graduates and apprentices to take the next steps in their journey.

“We want to get the message out to parents, grandparents, guardians, teachers, mature students and school pupils that college is so much more than a course – it offers pathways, experiences and qualifications that lead to real careers and future success.”

Fife College’s Open Days 2023:

  • Kirkcaldy Campus – Tuesday 28 March
