Why choose to study with us?

If you already live in and around Dudley, staying local for Higher Education (HE) makes sense because:

  • You can save money on rent, bills and food.
  • You will have family and friends on hand to support you.
  • Our annual course fees are on average half of those of a university - it will be more cost effective if you study the first part of your HE with us and then top up at a university.
  • You can keep your part-time employment as long as it allows you sufficient time to dedicate to your studies.
  • We’ve got great outcomes! 93% of our HE learners progress to work or further study six months after leaving us and most of these are in managerial or professional occupations.
  • Typically you will have more contact time with your tutors than at a university, allowing you greater individual support and attention – which for most learners means better results.

If you are moving to study with us from further afield, HE makes sense because:

  • You will be studying at a centre with a long history of preparing students for careers in a range of subjects, with specialisms in Science, Engineering Creative Arts and Sport.
  • Excellent progression opportunities with local Universities and dedicated Student Support Services to help you make your next move.
  • We have excellent employer links, working with over 2,000 local, regional and national businesses. This means we have great contacts for work experience and we can draw on a significant pool of professionals who can mentor you through your course or provide invaluable insights into their world through guest lectures.
  • Great facilities across our campus, with areas resourced for specialist programmes including Advanced I centre for Engineering & Manufacturing and/or Advance II centre for construction techniques, technology and off-site fabrication.
