Flexible learning

We offer courses on both a full and part time basis. Some of our full-time courses are delivered over only one to two days a week (depending on subject area). This allows full time courses to be accessible no matter what your schedule is, enabling you to develop in something you’re passionate about.

Fantastic student experience

Our student experience is one of a kind, and your development and wellbeing is our priority. Your voice is a welcome addition to our learning community and you can be employed as a Student Ambassador, run for a role in the Student Union or become a Student Voice Representative. Our enrichment activities also provide you the opportunity to try new things, develop new skills and meet a variety of new people outside of the classroom.

“Over 91% of our students agreed that we provide clear, fair and helpful feedback on work in a timely manner.”

“This is over 14% higher than the national average at other providers.”
