Course Introduction Meeting

You might have heard about a Course Introduction Meeting for your son or daughter as part of their application to West Herts College, simply put this is a chance for you to come and find out all about life at college and hear directly from our tutors. 

What happens at the meeting? 

We like all students to meet our tutors and their peers, so after a presentation that introduces the course, students get the chance to sit down with tutors and go into a bit more detail. If you've chosen a practical subject area then there may be some opportunities for you to get involved at your visit.

Free parking is available to visitors on campus, we recommend arriving 15 minutes ahead of the start time of your meeting to allow time to sign in and be directed to your group meeting.

How to get invited to a Course Introduction Meeting

Simple – just apply online and we’ll be in touch.

Do I need to prepare anything?

In most cases, no.

Students who have applied for a Performance based course such as Performing Arts, Music or Dance, will take part in a creative showcase to help the tutors make sure that the course is right for you. Our admissions team will contact you once you've booked your meeting with further information about what to expect.

I might need support at College, can I find out more?

Absolutely! There are opportunities to book in for a meeting with our student support or learning support teams, if you’ve indicated you have particular support requirements on your application then our team will be in touch with you.

Of course. Come and find out about the courses of interest, our admissions experts will be available to offer extra guidance.
