Our partners range from large further education institutions with a broad mix of students and courses, to smaller specialist institutions with unique facilities. Our partner institutions offer an experience uniquely different to what can be found on large university campuses, and you benefit from a supportive learning environment in a small, friendly community. Class sizes tend to be smaller, and studying in a more intimate and highly supportive academic community can give a good start to university-level studies.
Your course is of the same high quality and standard as all university courses, and your qualification is awarded by the University.
You’ll be able to take advantage of the facilities and services that your local college provides, and the additional support and resources available from the University. You’re given a University computing account enabling you to access a wealth of electronic resources and study guides and will automatically become a member of the University’s Students’ Union (UPSU).
