Colleges across Scotland opened their doors for Big College Open Week

Colleges across Scotland opened their doors from 21 to 28 March to mark the second national Big College Open Week – aka #BigCOW.

A host of exciting activities took place in colleges length and breadth of Scotland during the week. Organised by the College Development Network (CDN) Marketing and Communications Network, the purpose of the week was to demonstrate all that colleges offer – including the wide range of learning pathways and options open to students.

Choosing to study at college is the best way to start, change or develop a new career right on your doorstep. By coming together, Scotland’s colleges will show how they are the right choice for anyone – young and not so young – who wants to start or change their careers, and for businesses looking to develop their workforce.

During the week colleges offered taster sessions, tours, the chance to meet course tutors and members of Students’ Associations, who were on hand to talk about clubs, societies and support. There were taster days and open evenings, and you could ‘learn to student like a pro’ with short talks on careers, the library and admissions.
