We’re delighted to welcome you to Norland at our next open day on Saturday 20 May 2023, 9.30am-4pm.

We’re in the process of identifying a new open day date following the news that King Charles III’s coronation will take place on Saturday 20 May 2023. If you’ve already booked we’ll email you once the date has been confirmed and offer you the option to move your presentation slot. Please keep an eye on this webpage, your emails and our social media channels for more information about the new open day date.

We know just how important attending an open day is in your decision to study at Norland. A Norland open day provides the perfect opportunity to visit our campus and to speak to our current students, graduates and staff about all aspects of our award-winning early years degree and integrated Norland diploma.

When you book, you’ll be asked to select a preferred time slot for your presentation which will be led by Principal Dr Janet Rose and Vice Principal Mandy Edmond, who will be accompanied by a current Norland student and a fully qualified graduate, known as a Norlander or Norland Nanny. The presentation will last approximately an hour and 15 minutes.

You’ll also be able to explore our Oldfield Park campus and speak to current students and staff from a range of departments, including the academic team, placements, student support, admissions, accommodation, finance and the Norland Agency. You should allow yourself about two and half hours at Norland to attend the presentation, look around our facilities and to speak to staff and students. We can’t wait to welcome you to Norland to give you a taste of what studying here is really like.
