We know that for some people, the open House experience can be a bit overwhelming or a bit confusing.  In order to make life easier for our visitors on campus, we have a team of student helpers, who are there to assist, direct and answer any questions you may have.

They will be situated across both City and Coach Lane Campuses, and are easily recognisable, in their bright orange t-shirts.
