Applicant Welcome Event - 02/04/2020

Welcome Event at Bury College

Please note - Event no longer running

Due to current concerns surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are in the process of reviewing all our upcoming events. The safety and welfare of our applicants, students and staff is of the utmost importance and after some consideration, and purely as a precautionary measure, we have made the decision to cancel the Welcome Event on Thursday 2nd April.

Those students who have applied will not be disadvantaged in any way and there will be an opportunity for applicants to visit Bury College during the New Student Day which is due to take place on Monday 22nd June.

Please be reassured that this does not in any way affect your offer at Bury College and we are very much looking forward to you joining us in September.
