Our Higher Education courses provide a rich and engaging experience, including wider learning opportunities such as work experience and course-related trips.
We also understand that this has to fit around your personal commitments so we offer excellent well-being support and advice to help ensure you can excel from day one.

Not only that but living and studying locally means you will make savings and be able to achieve a University-level course at a lower cost.

Students have commitments outside of College – whether these are work or family related. Therefore, we timetable our Higher Education courses flexibly so you can fit your studies around those commitments, offering the majority of our courses on a full-time or part-time basis.
Cheshire College also offers ‘step-off’ points so you can leave with a qualification that is portable that allows you to resume the next stage of your study at a later date.
Our class sizes are deliberately smaller than you would find at University. This is so the lecturing staff get to know you and your learning needs, whilst you are taught in a friendly, supportive learning environment.
All of our undergraduate programmes are designed with the needs and demands of employers in mind. In many cases, our curriculum has been developed alongside employers and provides students with the opportunity to work on real projects. This ensures you gain not only the academic knowledge throughout your studies but also essential transferable skills.
