Open Day

I hope this email finds you well!

I am writing to extend a warm invitation to yourself and your students to attend our upcoming Open Day at City of Glasgow College’s Riverside Campus. We believe that your students would greatly benefit from the enriching experiences and opportunities we have to offer in the ever-growing global STEM sector and in the merchant navy.

Here’s the details

Time: November 25th, 10:00am-3:00pm.
Campus: Riverside Campus
21 Thistle Street
G5 9XB

(If you’re interested in courses other than our Engineering (Marine, Electrical, Mechanical) or our Nautical courses you should visit our City campus, for all other courses head to Riverside Campus.)

Our Open Day is designed to showcase the vibrant learning environment and innovative programs that make City of Glasgow College a unique educational hub. We also want to highlight the wealth of opportunity for all students in the Nautical & STEM sectors

Here’s a glimpse of what your students and staff can look forward to:

Practical Demonstrations: Engage in practical demonstrations that highlight our commitment to experiential learning.

Meet the Experts: Connect with our experienced faculty and staff to learn more about our cutting-edge curriculum and commitment to excellence.

Q&A Sessions: Have your questions answered by our knowledgeable staff and current students. Several companies will be present on the day offering info on engineering apprenticeships and merchant navy cadetships.

Attending our Open Day provides an excellent opportunity to gain insights into the educational landscape we provide, fostering a collaborative spirit between our institutions. We believe that by working together, we can create a more enriched learning experience for students in our local community.
