RVC Open House (Campus Tours)
Our Open House events are designed to allow prospective student, parents, teachers and careers advisors the chance to see one or both campuses on the same day. During the Open House, guests will have an introductory talk, giving an insight into the courses we offer at the RVC and how to apply. Guests will then tour the campus with student ambassadors. There will be opportunities to see the teaching and clinical facilities, to ask questions and gain a flavour of life at the RVC. This differs from our Annual Open day in that there will not be an opportunity to meet academic staff.
