Why our College?
97% of our full time gradates and 100% of our part time graduates are in employment of further study 6 months after completing their degree (Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes).
This places our College in the top 10% of providers and provides you with excellent routes to get you to where you want to be.
Flexible study options
Most of our courses require no more than two days attendance at college. This means you can continue to work alongside your studies and balance other commitments.
Smaller class sizes
Our smaller class sizes mean you get all the support you need during studies. This is a crucial difference to larger universities and provides you with access to your lecturers when you need them.
Applicants will need 96 UCAS points (or appropriate level 3 qualification). Mature students with a relevant industrial background may also be considered. All applicants will need GCSE English and Maths (at either grade C or grade 4 and above).
Applications from students whose first language is not English are welcome. For International students we require evidence of proficiency in English (including writing, speaking, listening and reading), the required minimum is: IELTS Academic (SELT) 6.0 overall (minimum 5.5 in all components). Please contact the Advice shop for advice and guidance. International candidates are also actively encouraged to access the International Students web page.
The programme is assessed through a combination, academic assignments, presentations, portfolios and project work. Students will have the opportunity to complete B licence EASA examinations leading to B licence certification. NB Students who complete this element of the programme will be required to gain two years’ experience at an approved maintenance organisation before being able to apply for either a Category B1.1 or B2 EASA Licence, subject to their chosen pathway.
You can progress on to further study at Masters, M.Phil. and PhD level.
Successful completion of this course gives students the opportunity to progress into a range of technical, supervisory and, in due course, management roles with the aviation sector.
