College offers higher education solution
Although the College historically delivers vocational courses, it has become much more, teaching qualifications across a wide range of subjects and at all levels.
“In no time the university world has changed,” said Principal Steve Wain. “The notion that any degree provided a passport into a great career has gone and prospective students are seeking courses that offer progression into employment as well as value now that tuition fees alone can cost over £25K.”
“Local courses, like those provided at Shrewsbury College, are becoming much more attractive to the discerning student seeking a relevant higher level qualification at an affordable price. With 1- 3 year courses available you can commit to higher education knowing that, unlike on some courses, you will have gained a qualification after every year and can complete your course the way you want to, including taking a break for a year or longer should you wish.”
Whether you're looking for an undergraduate programme, an HNC, a post-graduate certificate, or a professional qualification, the College’s HE programmes are designed to help you achieve your personal goals. Many of the courses are also available part-time, so you can study whilst developing your career.
Studying a higher level course at Shrewsbury College has some big advantages over universities. You build up far less student debt as college fees are lower than university fees, and by staying local you can keep in regular contact with your friends and study in familiar surroundings. Tutor groups are smaller than at university and grants and bursaries are available to help support your study.
Most courses mix practical with theory and whether you study at Radbrook Campus or at the Main Campus on London Road, you can be sure of high standards and excellent support. Every year more than 200 students graduate with a Level 4 or above qualification at Shrewsbury College.
