With so many opportunities for individuals and businesses offered at our campuses, online and in the workplace, now’s a great time to embrace lifelong learning and professional and personal growth.
Below, you will find out about the types of training and courses available at the College – one of the broadest curricula of any college in the UK!
We offer courses where no prior qualifications or experience is necessary, through to postgraduate Level 7 courses, and with our Distance Learning courses, you don't have to attend College.
There is a huge variety of subjects to choose from at various levels for differing abilities and requirements. You can learn a new skill or hobby with our leisure type courses, or earn professional and university level qualifications with University Centre Somerset.
Our teams offer an impartial, confidential service to help you decide which type or level of course is best for you, and provide information about funding, health and wellbeing, plus support for those with learning difficulties and disabilities.
So what are you waiting for? Enrol now to secure your place! We look forward to meeting you.
Applying to study a course at College may seem daunting but we’re here to support you.
We strongly recommend that you apply or enrol for your chosen course as soon as possible. This will secure your place and help us assess whether we have sufficient numbers. We aim to run all of the courses advertised however, we do need a minimum number of enrolments on each course to make this possible.
