Swindon College offers the widest range of full-time courses in the area with a mix of learning and training; preparing students both for employment and for university study. We also offer excellent success and progression rates.
Our industry-standard facilities – including engineering, construction, hospitality and catering, hairdressing, beauty and art and design – make us the first choice for those considering vocational (work-related) courses in the region.
Our new purpose-built construction centre also now provides excellent facilities for our brickwork and plastering students on our main campus at North Star.
At Swindon College we put students first. We are large enough to offer a full range of courses and facilities but small enough to care about individuals. All students have the benefits of a personal tutor and a team of highly-experienced professional teaching staff.
We offer a range of courses at different levels. Many of our students enter further education programmes, achieve and then progress on to full-time higher education courses here at the college or at universities around the country. Swindon College offers university-level courses at HNC/D, Foundation Degree, and BA (Hons) Degree.
