Merrist Wood College Open Event

24 February 2021

Looking to start college in September 2021? Activate Learning invites you to attend Merrist Wood College's February Virtual Open Event! Open Events are the perfect opportunity to consider your course options and discover what the college environment is really like. 

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation and the changing Government guidelines, we have made the decision that we will deliver this Open Event virtually in the form of 1:1 tutor appointments.

We are inviting you to book up to three virtual 1:1 appointments with a subject specialist tutor on Wednesday 24 February, between 4pm and 8pm.

You will be able to discuss our courses, your possible next steps and ask as many questions as you have!

Tutor appointments are available - BOOK NOW


We are also offering virtual 1:1 support appointments with our support services team. These appointments are available on Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout February (apart from half-term) between 3.30pm and 5pm.

You can choose to speak to:

  • our Head of Campus Student Experience - for insight into college life, our amazing facilities, what it's like on campus and what to expect from the day to day.
  • a member of our Learning Support team- we are committed to providing support for students who have additional needs. We are here to help if you have an Education, Health & Care Plan, or any kind of disability or learning difficulty.
  • a member of our School Partner Executive team - for advice with entry criteria, how to apply for your place or help with an application and general advice about your next steps including keeping your options open and thinking about a Plan A, Plan B and maybe even a Plan C.
  • a member of our Apprenticeship team- for guidance about apprenticeships. This high-quality workplace learning and training programme allows you to develop the skills employers want from day one, while gaining valuable skills and professional knowledge in a specific industry role.
  • a member of our Student Support team- for further information regarding the support and assistance framework we offer to all of our students, ranging from personal support to financial advice, we've got it covered.
