Higher Education

Achieve a university-level qualification that’s local, flexible and affordable at college. If you are looking to take your career and skills to the next level, we offer a range of Higher Education courses starting in 2018 in subjects such as tourism and hospitality management, computing, engineering, visual merchandising and performing arts. With our course fees typically less than those for full-time courses at university, these courses are a more affordable alternative.
