PROSPECTIVE students from across the country will descend on Longerenong College on Sunday.

The college will host its annual open day from 10am to 3pm.

College development officer Donna Winfield said a large crowd was expected.

She said people usually came from across Victoria, as well as NSW, South Australia and Tasmania.

"Anyone interested in the apprenticeship program, the Advanced Diploma of Agriculture, Diploma of Agronomy, Wool Classing course or the Diploma of Agribusiness Management should come along to the open day," she said.

"We will have our show steer parade where college students parade the steers they are getting ready for the Royal Melbourne Show.

"Visitors will also be able to see the day-to-day operations at the college and get to mix with staff and students."

The program for the day includes information sessions at 10.30am, 1pm and 2.15pm and a show steer parade at 11.30am.

There will be farm tours and campus walking tours all day for potential students and their families.

Registration is at 10am and lunch is at noon.
