Doncaster College offers #VirtuallyHere experience

Posted: 3rd June 2020

Doncaster College are due to announce a list of subject specific virtual open events in the coming weeks, off the back of a successful cross College online open event at the end of May.

The popular College hosted online event #VirtuallyHere, which gave new applicants the opportunity to tour the campus from the comfort of their own home.

Covering all curriculum areas, the College’s Marketing team led on the event which saw 100s of people register for the chance to view the facilities, hear from the College subject specialist tutors and learn more about the enrichment opportunities open to them when they start in September.

Head of Marketing Emma Turner said: “The #VirtuallyHere open event concept was something we decided would give students a chance to see their new tutors face-to-face online, as well as tour around the curriculum areas without having to leave home. It’s important to us as College during these difficult times that new and returning students feel comfortable and are ready to start their studies with us, a big part of that is keeping in touch with them and virtually opening our doors to welcome them in.”

Throughout June and July the public can register for forthcoming events through the College’s social media platforms and the College website, with new events due to be announced in the next few weeks.

“We are hosting a range of online open events for our University Centre Doncaster too, for those interested in progressing to Higher Education to gain a degree, HND or other higher level qualification,” adds Emma. “These events will replicate the #VirtuallyHere experience we offered for the full campus open event at the end of May. You can expect to hear from the specialists delivering lectures, learn more about the qualifications, enrichments and additional learning opportunities.”

Doncaster College and University Centre anticipate that many of their forthcoming events will be popular due to the mix of virtual tours, short insightful talks and Q&A.
