Foundation Degrees

These two-year, full-time courses can lead to a BA or BSc degree, with an additional ‘top up’ year of study.

Bachelor’s Degrees

Available as Bachelor of Science (BSc) or Bachelor of Arts (BA), these three-year, full-time degree programmes are of equal status.

Master’s Degrees

This is the highest level of study offered by the college and requires students to have previously completed a BSc or BA.

It is great to study at a new campus. The facilities are outstanding.
