Seven reasons to study higher education at College
1. We've got the know-how
Our specialist lecturers have industry experience to give you a career-focussed perspective on your studies.
2. We're more flexible
You can choose to study on a full-time or part-time basis, whichever suits you best.
3. Our facilities are first-class
We've invested £77million into our facilities since 2010 to ensure our learning environments are amongst the best in the country.
4. Personal learning
You'll be taught in classrooms, with smaller class sizes rather than lecture theatres, which makes lessons feel more personal. You'll also receive individual study support.
5. Our results are fantastic
We're the highest performing college in Staffordshire. We can boast 100% pass rates on many of our courses, so you should have a great chance of success.
7. Lower tuition fees
The average price most universities charge for a three year degree is currently £27,000 (or £18,000 for two years). The equivalent of two years study with us will cost you around £12,000 not to mention the savings you'll make on living and travel costs. Loans are available to cover the costs, so there's no need to worry about having to pay everything upfront. And you won't have to pay anything back until you're working and earning more than £25,000 a year.
