The College’s part-time and flexible learning options are designed to allow for study that fits alongside other commitments, such as work or family life.
Many of our courses are available to study on a full-time and part-time basis with stand-alone unit options also available, allowing you to build qualifications up over time.
The College offers small class sizes, high quality teaching and a diverse range of subjects.
