Find my course

Unsure what course to study?

You just need to answer three simple questions about your study preferences, interests and predicted grades and we can suggest courses that might suit you.

  • 1 Study type
  • 2 Your Interests
  • 3 Your Grades
Question 1

How would you prefer to study?

Question 2

What are your interests?

Question 3

What grades have you achieved or are predicted?

These results are a suggestion of courses you may want to explore but are by no means a definitive list and individual entry requirements do apply.

Will the Col­lege open in September?

Yes def­i­nite­ly!

We have been using Google Suite for Edu­ca­tion for over a year and it is well embed­ded in to our cur­ricu­lum. This has allowed us to tran­si­tion to remote learn­ing dur­ing the pan­dem­ic con­fi­dent­ly. Google Suite allows us to teach online or offline, any­time, and on any device to sup­port and con­nect with every stu­dent either one-on-one or with the whole class. 

We utilise Class­room to enable us to man­age cur­ricu­lum, assign­ments, and grad­ing all in one place so you can be con­fi­dent your expe­ri­ence is as high in qual­i­ty online, as it is on campus.

At this time, our pri­or­i­ty is to ensure the safe­ty of our stu­dents and staff so we are work­ing very hard to ensure our cam­pus and timeta­bles can work on reduced capac­i­ty lev­els, giv­en that social dis­tanc­ing is like­ly to still be in place. 

We expect a sig­nif­i­cant pro­por­tion of your teach­ing and learn­ing to still take place online for the major­i­ty of cours­es, and if you do have lessons on cam­pus you can be con­fi­dent that your safe­ty and well­be­ing will be para­mount from the moment you leave the house to the time that you return home.

Will there be open evenings so I can explore the College?

With the current social distancing restrictions in place by the government we unfortunately cannot conduct open events as normal.

However, we have virtual tours available on our site, and are working hard to improve these so you can get a full campus tour from the comfort of your own home. We will also be arranging Q&A sessions so you can meet staff and ask any questions that you have.

In the mean time, please visit our Campus Tours page where you can view our current virtual 360 tours, book a tour for when it is safe to do so, and download our prospectuses.
