Why visit the campuses of Northlink TVET College on their open day?
Because many college aspiring students are indecisive about which tertiary institution to attend, it is a choice which should not be taken frivolously. This is why you should attend an open day at Northlink College. The college has seven campuses, and to find out more information about the course offerings, prospective students can visit any of the campuses during an open day. Recently Covid-19 has had an inhibiting effect on a college open day spirit. Due to restrictions in movement and observation of Covid-19 protocols, no date has been set aside for an open day as yet. A date for an open day date will be communicated on the college website and social media platforms. 22 Apr 2022 Read more
