Sparsholt College and University Centre Sparsholt (UCS) are excited to announce their first Live Online Open Event of the year, taking place on Saturday February 6. Visitors who sign up to attend the Live Talks at the event will be able to pose questions in real time and hear from teaching and student support teams from across the College and University Centre 

Visitors interested in becoming students at Sparsholt this September will have the chance to build their own personalised event schedules and meet our expert teaching teams and Student Ambassadors to find out more about our leading land-based courses – all from the comfort of their own homes. 

As well as live Q&A sessions from Sparsholt tutors, the accommodation, funding, transport, wellbeing and admissions teams will be hosting chatrooms and phonelines will be open to attendees throughout the day to answer any student or parent queries 

As part of our activities for National Apprenticeships Week, our dedicated Apprenticeships team will also be on hand, hosting a live talk and chatroom, to give aspiring apprentices an insight into this exciting career pathway. Did you know 93% of apprentices stay in work, or go on to further training on completion of their apprenticeship! 

Sparsholt College and UCS Principal, Julie Milburn, said:  

“Sparsholt College and University Centre Sparsholt are delighted to be giving our prospective students the opportunity to ask all the questions they have of our expert tutors and support teams in person at these live online events.”  

 “At the moment everyone has to stay at home to stay safe which is why we have also enriched our website with lots of inspiring content such as guided and 360-degree facilities tours to give you a flavour of our beautiful 450-acre campus in the countryside. 

Our students and staff are once again responding brilliantly to the latest lockdown, but we understand how challenging this time will be for many students deciding their futures. Our admissions team are continuing to support our applicants, and we’ll do all we can in the coming months to get to know you, and help you discover new technologies and fresh opportunities at Sparsholt.”
