INDUSTRY LINKS We have excellent links with local employers and will help you arrange work experience placements so that your CV really stands out.

SUPPORT Our students tell us they feel really supported whilst at college. We’ll help you with your studies, financial issues, career advice, additional learning support and any other concerns you may have. See page 10 for more details.

FREE BREAKFAST We provide a free breakfast to students who are in college before 8:30am so it’s worth getting out of bed that little bit earlier!

PROGRESSION We offer courses at all levels so there’s always a course for you. There are even university courses available, in partnership with some well-known local universities, so you can stay at college and study a university qualification. This way you benefit from a familiar environment, closer personal support and reduced fees as well as studying locally.

NEED A QUIET SPACE?

ON FLEEK

Whilst we love the great vibe in our campuses, we all need a bit of quiet time to study. That’s why our libraries have dedicated quiet spots, perfect for studying, as well as books, magazines, electronic resources, journals and computers.

WORK IT OUT Want to work out without huge gym bills? We've got you covered with our range of onsite gyms at many of our campuses. With a range of cardiovascular, resistance equipment and free weights, you are sure to get a full body workout.

LOVE GREAT FOOD? We do too and our campuses have it covered with a great range of catering outlets. You'll find a selection of hot and cold food, there's even a Subway at Bordesley Green Campus! You can also bring your own food, and there’s even a microwave for you to use. We love good coffee and offer Costa Coffee or our new favourite Black and White brand.

STUDENT At South & City College and Bournville College everyone counts.

FREE TRAVEL Yes, such a good deal, we need to mention it twice – free travel to college for anyone under the age of 19, living more than 2 miles away from their campus.

ADDITIONAL LEARNING SUPPORT Our specialist staff are there to help you if you have a learning or physical disability. It is important to advise the college as soon as possible in order to assess your needs early by completing the relevant section of the application form. If you have a formal assessment already in place at school, please bring this with you to your interview.

PERSONAL TUTOR Every student has a dedicated personal tutor. This is your person for advice on assignments, your progress in general or a chat about anything that’s bothering you.

Our career advisors can help you get ready for your next step whether that’s going to work, university or moving onto the next level of your course with us.

All our staff are trained to help you if you have any concerns about your safety or wellbeing. Our welfare and guidance officers are there to support you with any problems.

MONEY MATTERS

FREE MEALS

Of course it does! If you’re under 19 your education is free but what’s more, if you live in a household with low income, our bursary fund may help with some of your expenses. Just ask!

We’ve already mentioned free breakfast for early birds, but some students may be entitled to free lunch too. Ask us when you start your course.

I don’t regret any second of coming onto this course. I’ve made a lot of friends. The tutors are amazing and helpful. Everyone is helpful. It’s just amazing!
