At Colchester Institute we aim to provide all students with a high quality industry related learning experience. The College is very proud of its well established partnership with the University of Essex. The partnership means that while our students enjoy the highly vocational relevance of our programmes, many will also emerge with a qualification, in most cases a degree, awarded by the University of Essex. We also offer Edexcel HNC and HND programmes in a range of areas. There are few colleges that offer students fine dining, the chance to have their hair done and nails pampered, browse the on-site art gallery and see some fantastic music concerts all on one campus. The Colne Bistro and Balkerne Restaurant, our fantastic award winning restaurants, are open five days a week and offer delicious, five star meals. We also have three campus refectories and a Starbucks.

Getting to Know... Name: Philip Cheung Job: Lecturer in Network and IT systems

Our Sta

As a lecturer, do you find it useful to draw on your own work experience? Absolutely, it helps a lot to be able to relate my own work experience when I teach. It makes the lessons relevant for students, so I think back to my time working within the electronics engineering and computing sector, and refer to real examples. But, of course, with this industry things change rapidly so I keep my finger on the pulse now by practising with new technologies as they come out. It’s an exciting industry to be involved in.

Why did you choose Colchester Institute over a traditional university? I was drawn to Colchester Institute because of the practical style of learning and applying skills. The facilities are very good too. The availability and quality of the programming lab has greatly assisted me in class and with course work.

Fees Major Government reforms to student finance commenced in 2012-2013 resulting in universities and colleges being able to charge variable fees. Universities and colleges that want to charge more than the basic fee (level not yet set for 2014-2015) must provide additional support to promote access to disadvantaged students. At the time of printing, Colchester Institute had not set course fees and support levels for 2014-2015. Once we have done so, we will update the fees pages on our website. We therefore recommend you consult our website for this information before you submit your UCAS application for entry to study in autumn 2013. These changes apply to UK and EU students wishing to study higher education in England.
