Student Life


Our modern campus has everything a student will ever need.

There are extensive on-site leisure and catering facilities (including a Costa Coffee and a Starbucks), study resources, industry standard equipment and work related learning environments. Plus free parking! We have a dedicated Higher Education Centre on the campus so HE students have their own space to study and relax in. In addition the campus is continually undergoing investment in facilities, with the latest project seeing an £8million investment in a new STEM centre. This joins the recently renovated HE space and the state-of-the-art creative and digital suite.

 “The college campus always has a great vibe to it.”

Matt Dowson, PGCE

 “The college allowed me to extend my learning beyond my studies with various opportunities that were made available to me.”
