Higher Education at GC

You don’t need to relocate to access great quality and affordable higher education.

With a wide range of HNCs, HNDs, Foundation Degrees and Degrees at Gloucestershire College you can choose a pace of study to suit your lifestyle and career goals.

Our class sizes are generally smaller compared to university enabling 1-1 tuition, and studying in a College environment means that you can speak to your lecturer five days a week and use our industry-standard facilities.

  • Dedicated higher education study space
  • Industry-experienced lecturers

“I went to GC because I’d heard a lot about the health and social care courses, I’d seen the great facilities, and it was easy to get to from my house. The support has been incredible and Sarah Walters is the best teacher. The lecturer’s support and the extra tuition they gave me helped me get here today. I’m going to do nurse training now.”

Olivia Pointek, Foundation Degree in Health and Social Care
