2. Book a chat with a tutor about your course choices

Whether or not you wish to attend a virtual open event, you should definitely consider booking a chat with one of our expert tutors to learn more about your preferred course.

An expert tutor chat is also your perfect opportunity to discuss course options if you have more than one study path in mind.

To book an expert tutor chat, click on the subject area below.

You'll then be taken to a booking page with a list of dates and times when our tutors are available.

Once you've booked your chat you'll receive an invite to a Teams meeting. Microsoft Teams is a simple-to-use chat platform - that B&FC students use throughout their time with us - that makes it easy to use your computer microphone to chat with the tutor.

You can use a desktop, laptop, tablet - or even your mobile.

Or if you prefer, you can simply chat using your keyboard.

You'll receive a reminder by email the day before your booked chat. At the time of your chat, simply click the link on your invite - and you'll be connected to your expert tutor.
