Our Higher Education (HE) provision is hosting an online Open Day for prospective students to learn all about undergraduate courses from the comfort of their own home. 

This virtual Open Day will take place on Monday 16 August with online information sessions starting at 3.30pm and 5.30pm. Attendees can chat to tutors, find out more about specific courses and student finance and learn about the support services available at the College including the Students’ Union, the Sports Academy and Additional Learning Support 

The Information and Guidance team will also be available to discuss options for those who may be unsure which course to study. 

The College offers a wide range of higher-level programmes including Foundation and Bachelor degrees, Higher and Degree Apprenticeships, HNCs, HNDs and professional business and leadership courses. Whether you are considering your options after A Levels or looking to change direction or further your career, there are full and part-time options that will support your future goals and fit around family and work commitments. 

From Criminology to Construction and Animal Management to Fine Art, our range of courses provide you with the opportunity to explore your passions and interests in a friendly community supported by state-of-the-art facilities. 

We were ranked as the best South Yorkshire college for overall student satisfaction in the 2019/20 Higher Education National Student Survey, with an overall student satisfaction score of 88.39%, comfortably above the national average of 82.65%.  

Andrea Clarke, Director of Quality for HE, said: “Those studying a Higher Education course at College will benefit from high academic standards, expert staff who are passionate about their subjects and excellent facilities.
