With lower costs than university, high success rates, one-to-one support and more course options, there has never been a better time to enrol on a university level course at Walsall College and pursue a career.
Boasting a HE success rate of 97% and a commendation from the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) for Higher Education, the equivalent of Ofsted, Walsall College offers a range of HNC and HND courses in subjects ranging from Fashion to Hospitality Management, but since September students have also been able to progress onto full honours degree courses.
Working in partnership with Birmingham City University (BCU), Walsall College is one of the first colleges in the region to offer degree level courses in subjects including, Business, Computing, Fashion, Graphic Design and Photography, enabling students to achieve a full degree at a fraction of the cost of going to university.
A range of Access to HE courses from Art and Design to Health Professions are also now available and specially designed for adults considering a return to full time education.
The open day will give prospective students the opportunity to speak to tutors about courses, tour the state-of-the-art facilities and speak to the student support team about the financial help available for tuition and living costs.
Principal and Chief Executive, Jatinder Sharma, commented: “Our qualifications are all about preparing people for the real world. We know what employers want from our graduates and we use our close links with industry to make sure that’s precisely what we give them.
“All enquiries are welcome, from school leavers who have completed their A levels or Level 3 BTEC qualifications to people looking to change their career direction or boost their chances of a promotion.
“With the cost of university still on the rise, studying locally has never looked so attractive and our small classes and personalised tuition appeal to students of all ages. Last year more students enrolled onto our higher education programme than ever before.”
The open day will be held at the college’s Wisemore Campus on Littleton Street West.
