At this years’ Open Day (May 12, 2018), Collarts opens their doors to the public and invites you to come and experience life as a student on their campus.
Throughout the day there will be information sessions on each course, where you will be able to ask questions and chat with teachers, graduates and student advisors. It’s a great opportunity to check out the campus’ facilities and the innovative and dynamic music, audio, arts and learning spaces. Food and refreshments are also provided throughout the day to keep you going, with staff around every corner ready to assist you.
With strong personal and professional development leading the Collarts ethos, it’s only natural that our Open Day would get hands-on beyond posters and flyers. A big part of that is the opportunity to speak to industry experts and students through a number of workshops on offer. Check out some of the one’s you should get to below:
Music Performance: Open Live Performance Class
Come along to see an open live performance from current Music Performance students and alumni. You’ll get the chance to listen to original songs that they’ve written and perfected at Collarts, alongside how they have honed their skills in the Music Performance course. Between performances you will be able to join in conversations and ask questions about Collarts Music and the course.
