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.

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.
