Our HE courses are awarded by the University of Salford, University of Bolton or Edexcel. We can offer you:

Teaching excellence – The college is recognised for excellence in teaching and learning at all levels of study. A key focus of the courses we offer are generous contact hours with your tutors and small class sizes. This means tutors are in a great position to support you to achieve your potential.

Great facilities – Our HE courses are offered across four centres with specialist facilities. Many of our HE courses are taught at our new FutureSkills centre, located in the heart of MediaCityUK, giving learners access to some of the best equipment and resources in the country.

Competitive Fees – Tuition fees are lower than universities and will help you manage the cost of Higher Education. For those opting to pay their tuition fees directly, rather than take out a loan, we offer instalment plans.

Employment prospects – All of our HE courses are clearly linked to employment opportunities. Learners take part in activities that will boost their CVs or portfolios such as work placements and networking events.

Flexible study – We offer intermediate awards such as foundation degrees and HNCs. Once you have completed your foundation degree or HNC you can opt to top up your qualification (e.g. to a full honours degree) or walk away with a recognised and respected intermediate HE qualification. Most courses are also offered full time or part time.
