Open Evenings

The College holds Open Events each year. For 2018 entry, these will take place on:

  • Wednesday 11 October 2017 (6-9pm)
  • Tuesday 17 October 2017 (6-9pm)
  • Saturday 25 November 2017 (10.30am – 2pm).

These are opportunities for prospective students and their parents to visit the College and find out more about the courses available.

An additional Open Evening for Year 11, Year 10 and Year 9 pupils is scheduled for Wednesday 7 March 2018 (5.30 -8pm).


The Bridging Course

If you apply to the College and are offered a place, you will be invited to the Bridging Course in early July as soon as GCSE exams are completed. This is to give you the opportunity to sample a range of subjects and to learn more about life in College. At the end of the week you have a personal interview to discuss your plans for September.

We strongly advise applicants to take advantage of Open Events and the Bridging Course.


For each of our partner schools there is a team of liaison staff who visit the school to give advice about Study Programmes and information about life in College. Staff will explain our entry procedure and help with applications.


If you do not attend one of the following partner schools, please contact Laurence Job (Vice Principal) who will send you relevant information. Email: enquiry@qeliz.ac.uk
