What happens at the Event?
Pulse College staff and students are here to help! On arrival you will be greeted by our welcome team of students and admissions officers. Following registration, you will receive a welcome talk.

If you would like to arrange a private campus tour and meeting, simply email us be clicking here and place Campus Tour in the email subject line.
Can I bring my family with me on a tour or talk?
Yes, provided there are spaces available. Please make sure you pre-book for everyone who wishes to attend. For some of the workshops and events, they may be limited to yourself and not open to extra family members due to space requirements.
Will I receive information about the open event?
After registering you will receive various e-mails, as well as texts, from us which will include what to expect from the Open Day and practical advice. Please take note to read all correspondance from the college regarding Open Events as they will contain important information.
Is it best to arrive ahead of the Open Event start time?
Yes, the event will start sharp at the allocated start time with a welcome talk so we recommend being on site at least 10mins before the Open Event start time. The Open Events usually last between 70-90mins so if you are running late, you are still encouraged to visit as staff/students will be available to talk to you at the end of the event and you will still get to experience the campus and facilities.
Can I just turn up and wander around?
No, due to the layout of the campuses the Open Events have a structured programme and we do not allow visitors to explore the facilities unattended. Visitors will need to come to the reception of which ever campus event that are attending to check in and will be directed to the Welcome Talk before the remainder of the Open Event begins.
Do I need to bring my Registration Email with me?
No, this is not required on the day but please ensure to read your confirmation email, reminder email and reminder text carefully, as these contain important information on the event and locations.
