College & Course Information

One of the most important decisions to be made at this stage is 'What course do I study and where'?

On this website we try to provide as much information as possible but we understand that you may still have questions about courses, college facilities or other issues.

It is very important to get good advice when choosing your course of study. The guidance team at Dudley College of Technology provide free and impartial information, advice and guidance to members of the public and students. The service is here to help you to make the right choices about your learning programme and future career.

We can offer:

  • One to one guidance interviews to help you choose and plan your career path
  • advice and help in choosing and enrolling on a learning programme
  • advice and support with financial and welfare issues that relate to your learning
  • access to information and resources on occupations, careers and higher education

Can't See The Course You Want?

If you can't see the course that you want to study, please let us know.

We are constantly improving our range of courses and it may be that a particular course or programme is currently being developed.

Progression Routes

Our range of programmes means that there are courses available to you, whatever grades you achieve at school. For example, if you leave school with GCSE grades E - G, you would usually start with us on a level 1 course and progress from there. Alternatively, if you achieve GCSE grades A* - D, you would usually start with us on a level 2 or 3 course, depending on the number of GCSEs at these grades and the subject areas. Whatever level you start at with Dudley College you can normally progress with us to a higher level; in fact many of our subject areas have arrangements that will allow you to progress to level 4 or higher (higher education level).

Potential Progression Routes for Course Levels.
