Quality teaching and learning

We are one of only five colleges in the UK to be granted Foundation Degree Awarding Powers by the Privy Council – meaning our higher education quality and standards are equal to any university.

Our small class sizes means greater access to tutors, a high level of support and detailed feedback.  Plus, we tailor our teaching to your individual learning style and future career. 

We are in the top 25% of institutions for Assessment & Feedback, Student Support and Personal Development. (National Student Survey 2016)

As an entrepreneurial college, our students don't just get a qualification; they develop qualities for the modern workplace. 

We have strong partnerships with regional universities to deliver our higher education qualifications, offering you direct progression routes.

Our facilities

Each of our six colleges has its own specialty and some of the best facilities in the country for education.



Our flexibility

You can study many of our courses on a part-time basis, which allows you to do other things while you study, such as work or care for family.


The social life

You can still live 'the student life' at college.  Our Student Union is active and organises a busy calendar of events each year.

Instead of being lost in the crowd, with us, you have the opportunity to know everyone better and make lifetime friendships.
