Welcome to higher education at City College Plymouth!

City College Plymouth works in partnership with Plymouth University ( to widen participation in higher education and deliver first-class degrees to the communities it services.

We have a wide range of university-level courses including Foundation Degrees and Higher National Certificates/Diplomas, many of which can be studied on a full or part-time basisWe are justifiably proud to offer a diverse range of high quality professional, vocational and technical university-level courses, many delivered in partnership with Plymouth University. Most of our Foundation Degrees give progression onto further study at Plymouth University, which will enable achievement of an Honours Degree from start to finish within three years.

We offer a comparable, rather than identical, experience to studying at university. What differentiates us is that we pride ourselves on our friendly and supportive environment, where lecture and tutorial groups are kept small to ensure that you get the most from your learning experience and are able to get to know your lecturers and fellow students.

To make sure that you achieve the knowledge and skills that employers are looking for, all of our university-level courses have been developed in conjunction with employers, and many of our courses will see you working with industry professionals on work-based projects.

City College has made a real commitment to ensuring that our students leave us prepared to make the most of every opportunity that presents itself and to be able to make a contribution from day one to their community and workplace. To support our students in achieving this we offer access to a wide range of activities to help you gain and develop the key employability and enterprise skills and attributes.

Our proximity to, and partnership with, Plymouth University enables you to benefit from both College and University facilities and services. Be part of it - come and study at City College Plymouth for a quality university-level qualification.
