On Saturday 4th February West Dean College will be holding an Open Day for students interested in learning more about programmes of study both in the School of Creative Arts and the School of Conservation. All prospective students will get a feel for the College's immersive creative atmosphere, will tour the student accommodation and Library facilities, glimpsing the historic interiors of the Main House used for site-specific work. Prospective Visual Arts students will be invited to tour the large spaces housed within the Edward James Studios, learning about various facilities and services available as part of the programmes. As well as connecting with Programme Leaders and Tutors, visitors will meet current students who can further inform them about student life and opportunities, as well as other staff members who can discuss funding options.
If you would like to arrange a visit or have any other questions about visits or Open Days, please contact the Registry Office on + 44 (0) 1243 818 291 or [email protected]
