After school, I secured a higher apprenticeship at Unilever and it was them who chose GC to deliver their apprenticeships. When I went into college I was really impressed with their engineering workshops and equipment.

Access great quality and affordable higher education on your doorstep.

From HNCs and HNDS, to foundation degrees and higher apprenticeships, you’ll find a diverse mix of courses here at GC, making your pace of study more flexible.

They often include workplace learning to provide that all-important industry experience employers are looking for. Plus, you’ll find the same industry-standard facilities and professional lecturers at college as you would at university.

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. I’m going to do nurse training now.

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. Many university courses are full-time, but at GC you have the option to study most of our HE courses on a part-time basis. Our flexible approach means your learning can fit around existing home or work commitments, and you can live at home as our campuses are right on your doorstep.
