We are pleased to have developed a number of wide-ranging degree programmes in partnership with prestigious Higher Education institutions.

These include The University of Wales Trinity Saint David, Glyndwr University, University of South Wales and Pearson.

All of our Higher Education courses have been designed with employment and future careers in mind and we strive to give our graduates the best experience and knowledge to equip them for the working world.

Our Higher Education courses are;

Local – You won’t need to move away from home to study making it easier to fit in with your work and family life.

Affordable – Fewer travel costs and no need to move away from home. This can keep your living costs down to a manageable level.

Flexible – Our Higher Education programmes often have full-time and part-time routes. We try to organise the timetable so you can still work or carry out family commitments whilst you are studying.

Supportive – Class sizes are smaller than at university, enabling you to receive more individual attention and guidance from your tutor.
