Find yourself reaching higher on our Honours Programme.

Step up to a top university or move into a competitive programme like Medicine or Law with our Honours Programme. Perfect for ambitious and high-achieving students.

At Newcastle and Stafford Colleges Group (NSCG), all students are encouraged to realise their ambitions and achieve or exceed their target grades through excellent teaching, the development of independent learning skills and outstanding pastoral and academic support.

The Honours Programme is an additional pathway for students whose aspirations are to progress onto highly competitive courses at top universities, such as those in the Russell Group. Once accepted onto the programme, you’ll be expected to commit extra time every week to this intensive support pathway.

You’ll get involved in extra and super-curricular activities and experiences, such as visits to top universities including Oxford and Cambridge. The programme helps build your confidence, develop your skills and knowledge and improves your chances of achieving a place at a world-class university.
