Support for Transition from School to College

The Student Advice and Support Team (SAST) from NESCol will be hosting online events throughout July and August for new applicants who may benefit from a supported transition to College.

This will be a chance to meet (virtually) with other students as well as members of the SAST and have an introduction to life as a student at NESCol and address any queries you may have prior to starting College. We want to ensure your transition to College life is as smooth as possible. Our programme of events will include:

  • An opportunity to meet with other applicants and with staff
  • Group exercises, discussions and team working
  • Virtual Campus Tours
  • Introduction to Study Skills
  • Introduction to Money Management
  • And more…
