Our ‘outstanding’ College (Ofsted, 2009) offers inspirational facilities, in a bright, modern setting providing the perfect learning environment, and our energetic Students’ Union aims to give the complete social environment too! Students starting a foundation degree or university-level course will now be able to benefit from our brand new University Centre, at our award-winning Beacon status college, all at the heart of the English Riviera.
The University Centre provides a student social space, lecture and conference facilities, an incubation centre and an ideas lab for business start ups. Working with local employers, our courses are designed to provide a direct route into a chosen career. Students have access to the latest technology, support from highly committed, specialist staff and a designated learning resource centre.
A recent Quality Assurance Agency review (QAA, May 2010) gave the college full confidence in its university level provision. This was further ratified in the latest national learner satisfaction survey, where the college received overall satisfaction of 85 per cent, compared to the national average of just 82 per cent.
