Open Events at West Suffolk College

After postponing our 6 and 25 November Open Events, we are pleased to inform you that we will be holding two events on Thursday 2 and Saturday 4 December at West Suffolk College.

Due to enhanced Covid-19 safety measures, we will be assigning you an event date and time for your visit, so we can limit the number of visitors at the college at any one time. 

On confirmation of your visit, you will need to tick the box on the form to confirm that you will undertake a Lateral Flow Test - 24 hours prior to your visit to the college, or that you’ve been double vaccinated.

Please be mindful that you may need to queue outside for a short while as we check tickets. We will move you through as quickly as possible. However we are not able to let you enter the college earlier than your given time.

Please select your slot from the relevant time and button below and click to confirm you will take a lateral flow test or have been double vaccinated.
