This event is now fully booked.   Attendance is reserved for booked places only.  If you would like to be added to the waiting list for this event, please contact registry@farnborough.ac.uk 

 

As you reach a crossroads in your education, we understand that you will be starting to consider your options for the future.  We at the College are pleased to be able to offer an opportunity for current year 10 students and their parents/guardians to visit the College and truly experience what it is like to be a student at Farnborough. 

As part of our safeguarding procedures, we require parents/guardians to provide their contact details (if they are attending the Year 10 Taster Event) and to have pre-booked their child’s place, which you can do via the 'Get Tickets' link above.  

Please note, we will not be able to accept visitors who have not booked their place in advance.

 

Students

You will attend taster sessions in three subjects of your choice with each session lasting 40 minutes.  The courses available for the taster sessions have been selected so that you have an opportunity to experience a wide range of subjects including those that you may be less familiar with.  They represent just some of the courses that will be available to you should you decide to apply to the College.  Your timetable for the day will be confirmed ahead of your visit.

You will also be taken on a guided tour of the College campus by current students who will be able to give you even more of an insight into life at Farnborough.  Timings for the afternoon are as follows:
