Higher education

Our wide range of university-level courses mean you don’t have to leave home to achieve higher education ambitions.

And there are some significant benefits to choosing to study with us:

Enhance your employability

Employers are looking for CVs that stand out from the crowd, and many of our graduates are employed in a managerial role within 6 months of achieving their qualification.

Reduce the cost

It could save you up to £6,000 throughout your undergraduate studies, compared to a traditional university route. What’s more, staying local could save on travel and accommodation too.

One supportive campus

Everything you need is based here - experienced tutors with in-depth knowledge of their field, and industry-standard facilities with smaller class sizes.

Flexibility

Most of our university-level and professional courses can be studied around employment, so that you can work whilst you study. Many courses, such as Human Resource Management or AAT Accounting, can also be studied part-time.

Business

Our business and enterprise courses are built around practical assignments based on real-life workplace situations, backed up with placements and valuable work experience opportunities.

Computing

Looking to create 3D games, build websites or master mobile networks? Then you are in the right place – these computing courses are the perfect place to launch a career in the lucrative IT industry.

Early Years and Child Care

If you’re a practical, patient and fun-loving person, we can help you to unlock the door to a career as a teaching assistant, children’s centre manager, or early years educator.

Engineering

Our £3 million Discovery Centre gives you chance to get hands-on experience in a range of disciplines, from milling and turning to welding and sheet metal work – all desperately sought-after skills.

Health and Social Care

Care, compassion and commitment are the core values needed to learn all the practical skills required for a range of careers from care assistants to health visitors, midwives, nurses, therapists, or nutritionists.
