Why our College?

Outstanding Progression

97% of our full time gradates and 100% of our part time graduates are in employment of further study 6 months after completing their degree (Teaching Excellence and Student Outcomes).

This places our College in the top 10% of providers and provides you with excellent routes to get you to where you want to be.

Flexible Study Options

Most of our courses require no more than two days attendance at college. This means you can continue to work alongside your studies and balance other commitments.

Smaller Class Sizes

Our smaller class sizes mean you get all the support you need during studies. This is a crucial difference to larger universities and provides you with access to your lecturers when you need them.

Entry Requirements

We attract students from varied backgrounds and encourage them to reach their full potential. A minimum of 80 tariff points is usually required but we have no standard offer as we take into account your reference, motivation and commitment to the course, as well as any projected or actual A level grades or other qualifications. We welcome students from Access Diplomas and applicants may be invited to interview.

Applications from students whose first language is not English are welcome. For International students we require evidence of proficiency in English (including writing, speaking, listening and reading), the required minimum is: IELTS (SELT) 6.0 overall (minimum 5.5 in all components). Please contact the Advice shop for advice and guidance. International candidates are also actively encouraged to access the International Students webpage.


All modules are assessed at the end of the term and some modules have additional mid semester assignments. We use various assessment methods, including examinations, essays, in class assessments, presentations, portfolios, dissertations and projects.


Graduates from the course have embarked on research careers by undertaking Masters and PhD programmes of study at other institutions.

Career Progression

Past students have gone into a variety of careers including teacher training, research assistant, librarianship, publishing, local radio, management and administration, professional sports coaching, mental health nursing, health and social care, youth work, marketing and website design and joining the police graduate trainee scheme.
