Why City College Plymouth?

Our partnership with Plymouth University means we can give you a great education, at a great price. Here are the top five reasons students choose us for their university-level qualification.

Designed to Get You Your Dream Job

Our courses have been developed with employers, to give you the skills and knowledge you need to get started in your career. And we work with employers to offer you vital work experience where possible, so you’ll get a head start on many other newly-qualified workers.

Cheaper Than University

A full-time Foundation Degree costs under £6,000 at City College. That’s around £3,000 less than it could cost you at university!

Smaller Groups

Smaller groups mean you can get to know your lecturers and classmates better. You’ll have more individual attention, be able to ask questions easier and really explore your chosen subject.

A Course to Suit You

From software development to hospitality, there are plenty of courses to choose from at City College. And many can be studied part-time, so you can fit studying around work or children.

A Great Place to Study

We want you to enjoy your time with us. So we’ve got some fantastic on-site facilities, and a great support network. Plus, our partnership with Plymouth University means students on accredited programmes can use the university’s facilities too.
