THE NEW University Technical College due to open in September has announced that it will hold more open evenings for prospective students.

Parents and pupils will be able to find out what the new engineering college will be able to offer them at open evenings at the Oxford Brookes University Ferndale Campus on Thursday from 6.30pm to 8pm.

They will have another opportunity to find out more at an open evening on April 23.

Angela Barker-Dench, principal at the college, said: “The size of attendances and the response we have had at previous open evenings has been remarkable. It is important in the run up to the official opening of UTC Swindon to capitalise on the feedback we have had by putting on two more events. Our open evenings are a great chance to go through the curriculum with the parents and potential students leading up to the opening of UTC Swindon. The evenings are always engaging and informative events, with the aim to let no question go unanswered.”
