College welcomes new students with Freshers’ Fair


12 September 2017

Burton and South Derbyshire College kick-started the new academic year by hosting its annual Freshers’ Fair outside its Town Centre Campus on Wednesday 6th September.

The annual Freshers’ Fair is designed to welcome new full time students, giving them the opportunity to make new friends whilst gaining information on important student issues, from personal security to finance.

With a variety of activities for students to get involved in, including giant Kerplunk and Connect 4 games, and a football shootout by Burton Albion FC’s Community Trust, the event gave students a fun start to their college life. Meanwhile, the College’s Mulberry Bistro got involved during the event, serving free food and hot chocolate. 

Talking about the Freshers’ Fair, Emily Vinall, Enrichment and Wellbeing Coordinator at Burton and South Derbyshire College said: “The Freshers’ Fair provided a great opportunity for new students to mix with each other and make friends in a relaxed, fun environment. It also gave representatives from local services the opportunity to provide students with useful advice and information on a wide range of subjects, giving them an insight into what the College and local area have to offer.”

For anyone who has yet to make up their mind about their choice of study, it is still not too late to enrol on a full time course at Burton and South Derbyshire College. The College’s Learner Services team is available to offer advice, help and guidance. For more information on enrolling on a course, either drop into the College or call 01283 494400.
