Most people think that Higher Education (HE) means going away to university to study, but that doesn't have to be the case and doesn't always suit individual circumstances. University isn't the only route.

More and more people are recognising the benefits of staying at home and studying HE at college. From saving money, to having a personalised experience, studying HE at college offers a more affordable route to a bachelor's degree - with the option to top up your qualification to a full honours degree at one of our renowned university partners.

Our students get the best of both worlds: excellent work-related learning to maximise career opportunities coupled with smaller class sizes, campuses both north and south of the river, greater support and a personalised, supportive environment. 

If university isn't what you expected or maybe you want to up skill in your career, we've got you covered with our range of HE courses starting THIS JANUARY!
