AA School Open Day

Ever wondered what it's like to study at the AA School? This is your chance to give it a try! To give prospective students, parents and advisors the opportunity to truly experience life at the AA, we're opening our doors as outlined below.

Open Days are the perfect opportunity to:

  • Chat to current students
  • Meet our tutors and programme directors
  • Take a tour of the buildings, workshops and studios
  • Get tips and advice about your application
  • Get a true feeling for the campus and our exciting location
