Creative staff will be on hand to provide information and advice on a wide variety of courses, student accommodation and the application process at a Hartlepool college.

Cleveland College of Arts and Design’s Hartlepool campus, in Church Square, will be open to the public from 10am to noon on Saturday.

Visitors will be able to meet with the course programme leaders and view the department facilities, allowing an opportunity to see a range of student work and gain a deeper insight into the modules covered on the degrees.

There will also be tours of the campus facilities and student accommodation facilities at Crown Halls in Hartlepool, as well as a question and answer sessions by student services on support and finance, and information on employment and enterprise opportunities.

Student ambassadors will also be on hand to help with queries and also give first-hand experience on what it is like to be a student at the college.

College principal Martin Raby said: “It is really important for potential students to make the best decision for them when it comes to the right course and college, and so getting expert advice is critical.

“We offer unique courses and the highest quality of art and design teaching, and our creative staff members can guide students through the options available and find the right academic path for them.

“A visit to the campus to meet our student ambassadors also offers a great opportunity to discover the benefits of a specialist art and design college and a friendly, welcoming atmosphere.”
