Discover our colleges (Open Events)

Want to find out more about our colleges? Then come to one of our Open Events and you will discover how Activate Learning can help transform your future!

We run a number of Open Events throughout the year at our three colleges: Banbury and Bicester College, City of Oxford College and Reading College.  

Events usually run in the early evening, with some also running on Saturday mornings. These are an ideal opportunity for prospective students and their family to tour our facilities and talk to teaching staff and current students. You can also take part in a range of have a go activities, too.

Here's what some of our prospective students and their parents said about the events:

  • 'We were very impressed by the staff and the facilities..'
  • 'The IT tutor was inspirational. He was honest and extremely knowledgeable about his subject area.'
  • 'The new Health and Beauty salons are fantastic'
  • 'The careers advisor was excellent, helping my son who was recently diagnosed with ASD.'
