Courses for adult students
Are you returning to study after a break? Have you been out of education for some time but gaining real-life experience? Are you looking to change direction? We welcome adult students to all courses in this directory. Some academic and vocational courses have been specifically designed for mature students.
If you’d like to apply for one of these courses, you’ll be invited to an initial assessment prior to your interview. This is to make sure that the course is at the right level for you. We’re happy to accept mature students without any formal qualifications, and our guidance team will be pleased to help you consider your options.
As well as the main academic programme, you'll also be expected to take part in the College Enrichment Programme, which offers a wide range of activities such as sign language, sports, drumming, driving test theory and many more.
For more information please see our Enrichment area.
During your time at College, you'll be assigned a personal tutor, who will be responsible for monitoring your academic progress. You'll attend a tutorial meeting every week and part of this time will be allocated to group activities, such as recognising your best learning style, study skills, revision skills, careers education, financial matters and much more. The other part will be dedicated to an individual progress review, enabling your tutor to make sure you're on track to get the best grades possible.
