Next Online Open Day (BOOK YOUR PLACE NOW)

Date: Saturday 11th July 2020

Time: 12pm – 4pm

Location: Riverside Campus. (See below for how to find us!)

We’re very proud of our school, and we’d love the chance to show it off to you. Of course, the Online Open Day is not just about amazing equipment, it’s also the perfect chance to speak to tutors and staff about the courses themselves, how they will work for you and how to become a Futureworks student.

Thinking about studying Games, Animation, Sound Engineering or Music Production?

At our Open Day, we’re here to make sure you get fully acquainted with our tutors, facility and courses. We have admissions staff and tutors on hand to answer any questions you may have, as well as showcasing some of the fantastic work our students produce. If you have questions about where each course might lead you, we offer advice on career pathways and opportunities available to you upon graduation.

Once you have been introduced to some of our tutors, you will be shown a guided tour of our facilities, to give you a taster of the environment you will be working in.

After the tour you may have further questions to ask us, or even feel you are ready to apply, in which case we can talk you through the application process and answer any additional queries you might have.

The Online Open Day runs from 12pm – 4pm. However, you need to book your place so that we can send you instructions on how to join us.  Click here to book your place on any of our Open Days.

If you’re unable to make our next event, don’t worry – we have Open Days throughout the year. If you don’t want to wait for the next one please call us to arrange your personal tour.

If you need any assistance or more information, just call one of our team on 0161 214 4600 or drop us an email. We will be happy to help.
