Who are Leicester College Higher Education courses for?

To study a HE course with us you will need to have already achieved a level 3 qualification, or other suitable qualification if you are progressing onto a further HE course. We offer both full and part time study so that you can choose an option which is best for you. Our class sizes are deliberately smaller than you will find in universities and full time taught hours range from 12 to 15 hours per week. This ensure that you receive more quality one-to-one time with your lecturers.

Everyone studying with us benefits from a personal tutor and can access additional learning support if required.
