Hopwood Hall College and University Centre

Welcome to our Virtual Open Event.

This Virtual Open Event is taking place at such an exciting time. There's a wave of optimism running through the country – and this is your chance to seize all the opportunities ahead!

There's a lot to explore this evening, but we'd like to encourage you to start by watching the welcome message (below) from our Principal and CEO Julia Heap.

You'll also find a number of testimonials from former and current students. These individuals really paint a picture of what it's like doing a course at the college – whether you're a school leaver or an adult learner.

These short clips should give you a really good idea of what it's like to walk our hallways and be taught in our classrooms. Until you get to enjoy the same experience in-person, we'd love you to take our virtual campus tours.

You're free to start looking for your perfect course at any point. If you're an adult learner, you've got fantastic options when it comes to Access and Higher Education.

We've also got a range of Short, Part-time and Flexible Learning courses. You'll no doubt find a few that will tickle your fancy and – if you're ready and raring to go – some of our part-time courses are starting right now!

In addition, we've got an exciting range of courses for school leavers, such as the revolutionary new T-Levels, as well as opportunities for anyone who's interested in an Apprenticeship.

You can hear from the tutors in specially made videos found in each subject area. They aim to give you a handy overview of the course, but if you've got any questions then be sure to ask them through our live chat until 7pm. However, you might first find what you're looking for in our Frequently Asked Questions.

Finally, we're over the moon to unveil our new alumni campaign It All Started At Hopwood. This chronicles the stories of some of our most notable former students – including Gold Medallists, YouTubers and history-making politicians. These will no doubt be a source of inspiration and a great reminder of what you can achieve post-Hopwood.
