Welcome to our Open Evenings page

Shrewsbury Colleges Group can offer you a vast range of qualifications designed to suit your needs and future aspirations.

From A Levels and on to Higher Education, to vocational courses, Apprenticeships, professional courses and degree level study, we are here to help you make outstanding progress and succeed. We have many courses to choose from so planning your visit to our Open Evenings is crucial to allow you to make the most of your time.

Full Subject List and Campus Opening Dates HERE

With three campuses across Shrewsbury we suggest you make a list of subjects you are interested in seeing then look up which campus they are taught at and book on the appropriate Open Evening. If you are settled on the subjects you want to study you may find you can fit two campuses in on one trip, just make sure you leave enough time between your bookings. However, as the evenings are usually very busy if you are looking to cover two or more campuses we would suggest you consider visiting us on more than one night to give you time to see all the facilities and talk in depth to our teaching staff.

Once you have decided which subjects you would like to see and which day(s) you are attending, follow the campus BOOK NOW links at the top of this page to the ticket booking form.
