Strode College is situated in Street, in central Somerset. It was awarded Learning and Skills Beacon status by the DfES in 2004. The college has run successful higher education courses for some years both independently and with other universities. Our partnership with the University of Plymouth started formally in September 2006. Successful students have progressed on to the third year of an honours degree at the University of Plymouth.
Our college campus is modern and thriving, with excellent research and computer facilities. Alongside the college is a theatre with a mixed programme of films and live performances, and an indoor swimming pool. There is an outdoor swimming pool just five minutes’ walk away, with Clarks Village Shopping Centre close by. We have excellent sports facilities and a well-equipped gym. There is a vibrant, modern day nursery and our Student Support Centre can offer help to arrange local accommodation.
Our foundation degree courses have been developed with considerable support and advice from a wide range of employers throughout Somerset, ensuring the content is totally relevant and up-to-date. We have a well-developed tutorial system to assist students to achieve their full potential, as well as a range of support services.
