Secondary school students and other keen learners can experience what UCOL Wairarapa has to offer at the campus’ Open Day on 23 October.

The public will be able to tour the facilities, watch live demonstrations, get hands-on with activities, and talk with staff and students to get a feel for UCOL life.

UCOL’s expert staff will lead dedicated tours of the facilities for Hair and Beauty, Carpentry/Joinery, Automotive, Early Childhood Education, Chef Training and Hospitality and Nursing.

People can talk to staff and visit the information stands in the campus Hub to find more about these subjects, as well as Science, Veterinary Nursing/Animal Care, Business, and Information and Communications Technology.

Anyone who is ready to enrol to study in 2020 can do so at Open Day, and should bring along a form of ID to complete enrolment on the spot.
