Open Day

Almost a thousand people visited Waterford College of Further Education's recent Open Day, the largest number in the history of the College. Drawn from all over the South East by stunning visual and audio displays, and a reputation for the broadest and most exciting range of further education courses in the region, people queued along Parnell Street from morning onwards. The Open Day provides day long access to information and progression opportunities and was an opportunity for people to experience college life first hand. Both current students and tutors were on hand to give information on over 30 full time day courses and the range of VTOS opportunities available.
