A LIFE & EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE
DEDICATED, CARING & SUPPORTIVE STAFF
We believe that coming to college should be more than just a qualification. It’s also about developing your personal skills, supporting your physical and mental well-being, building your confidence, and getting you work-ready. That’s why there’s loads to do on campus when you’re not busy studying.
Situated in the heart of our Coast Road campus, Retreat Restaurant and Bistro is our commercial restaurant ran by our team of trainee chefs and front of house service students.
Using locally sourced seasonal ingredients, it offers a high-quality dining experience at an amazing price. There’s also themed nights held throughout the year for you to enjoy and Christmas dinners served up in December.
Relax, unwind and treat yourself at Retreat Salon. Staffed by our talented hair and beauty trainees, customers can indulge in various treatments and services; from facials, massages and makeovers, to stylish cuts and colours – all available at greatly reduced prices.

Our Tyne Coast College Students’ Union reps work across TyneMet College, South Tyneside College, South Shields Marine School and Queen Alexandra Sixth Form. As a member of our Students’ Union you can get involved in loads of activities held throughout the year, such as charity events, student events, entrepreneurial projects, charity support events and challenges, the list goes on.
As well as all the fun stuff, you get to have your say about college life and any changes you would like to see. The Students’ Union elects a committee made up of a President, Vice President and numerous officers from the student body every year.
Want to stand for election to the Students’ Union or be involved? It looks great on your CV or personal statement as it shows you’re a team player or strong individual as an ambassador and voice for other students. The best part is you can get involved as much or as little as you want.
