About University Level Courses

According to Which?, the average student in England will graduate with debts of over £50,000. It’s no wonder that people are finding much more practical alternatives to university to accelerate their careers.

Studying university-level courses locally can help significantly reduce the costs of gaining a degree; with competitive fees and no relocation costs. And if you’ve already studied a further education qualification at GC, you could also be entitled to a bursary to help towards the costs of your course.

With a wide range of part-time and full-time professional courses, HNCs, HNDs, foundation degrees, degrees, and postgraduate qualifications at Gloucestershire College (GC), you can choose a pace of study to suit your lifestyle and career goals. You can still earn a degree-level course while you work,
but if you’re new to the workplace you’ll gain that all important work experience at GC too.
