It gives you the opportunity to meet with one of our department experts who can guide and advise you on the best course possible to suit your needs, whether its full time, part-time or distance learning.  We can also advise on career opportunities or progression routes upon completion of a course with us here at Portobello Institute.  See below dates for our upcoming open days.
