University-level Study

Students graduating

Get the qualification you need to land that dream job. City College Plymouth offers a wide range of university-level courses, including Foundation Degrees, Higher National Diplomas and Higher Apprenticeships.

A great education, at a great price …

Choosing City College could save you money. Studying for a full-time Foundation Degree with us could save you around £3,000 compared to a university!

The best of both worlds …

We’ve partnered with Plymouth University on many of our courses. You can even study with us for a Foundation Degree, before moving onto Plymouth University, so you can achieve an Honours Degree within three years.

Courses that really prepare you for working life …

We work with businesses to develop our courses. And our lecturers are industry-professionals, so they know what you need to get ahead in your career.

Small, friendly classes, with support on hand if you need it …

Independence shouldn’t mean you can’t ask for help and advice if you need it. Our lecturers are always happy to talk about your course. And the Student Liaison team is on hand to give you any support you might need with student life in general.

Want to work while you learn?

Have you thought about an Apprenticeship? You could study for a degree while earning a salary. Many of our university-level courses are also available to study part-time, so you can fit them around your current job, or children.
