Welcome from the Principal
I’m pleased that you are considering The City of Liverpool College for your next step towards future success. We have a wide range of first class higher education programmes on offer which have been designed in collaboration with employers and universities, in order to get you where you want to go.
During Clearing our dedicated programme leaders and advice and guidance team will work to ensure you’re on the right course, which is intended to raise both your skill levels and provide relevant opportunities for success in the workplace.
Becoming a City of Liverpool College student gives you access to specialist facilities and award winning tutors, who come with a wealth of knowledge and industry experience, as well as great contacts with employers who are industry leaders.
When making your decision about where to study, I think it’s important to know that the quality of our teaching is recognised nationally, and in 2019 The City of Liverpool College was awarded ‘Silver’ under the Teaching Excellence Framework by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) for exceptional quality and standards in education.
On offer at the College, we have a range of qualifications that include higher national certificates and diplomas and foundation degrees, and there are clearly mapped out progression opportunities to ‘top up’ to honours degree, which means many of our graduates choose to stay at The City of Liverpool College to continue their studies at honours degree level. You should also know that learning can be tailored to your needs, with flexible study that works around your employment and home commitments.
But it isn’t all about work: our students have access to a thriving Student Union and extra-curricular opportunities, with the student engagement team providing support not only for college wide social events but also for those wanting to develop their own business ideas and ambitions.
Students who study with us are offered a high quality academic experience and unique opportunities for progression, as a result of strong links with industry and partnerships with other higher education institutions. Also, those who graduate and go on to study elsewhere find that the qualifications earned with us stand them in good stead when choosing further study or moving into employment.
I do hope you decide to take your next step at The City of Liverpool College. You can be assured that in doing so you’ll become a valued member of our student community – respected, challenged, and supported to succeed.
