If you’re thinking about studying a Higher Education course, have you considered studying at Middlesbrough College’s University Centre?

Located in the heart of Middlesbrough, Middlesbrough College’s University Centre could be the perfect place to help you progress in education and get the career you want!

Just take a look at the 5 reasons why we think you should study a University course at Middlesbrough College.

Save your money

Higher Education courses at Middlesbrough College’s University Centre are a fraction of the cost of a traditional University. Although many people may still need to apply for student loans, the course fees are typically less than a University so by the end of your studies, you will have less debt than the average University graduate with an equivalent qualification.

Stay close to home

You can also save money by staying close to home, and not relocating to study at a University. This also means that you don’t have to make any major adjustments to your life. Our study programmes are designed to be flexible so that your learning can fit around your life.

Additionally, Middlesbrough is a great place to live and study, there is always something going on in the area and plenty of opportunities to get involved within the local and College community.

Designed for employability

Here at Middlesbrough College, we work with lots of employers across the North East so that we can understand what key skills, experience, and knowledge they need from their future employees. Our courses are designed to prepare you for employment, that’s why we include opportunities for hands-on learning. We also hire industry experts to teach at Middlesbrough College! That’s right- you’ll be taught by people who have first-hand industry experience and knowledge.

Smaller class sizes

Unlike traditional Universities, you’ll study in small class sizes and we will provide more face-to-face contact hours so that you get the most out of your time here. This allows for more one on one time with your tutors, so they can get to know you better and help you with any problems you may have. You will also spend more time and hopefully build good relationships with your classmates. You will be in an environment where everybody is able to participate in class discussion and asks questions, which will boost the quality of your learning.

Dedicated learning spaces

Our University Centre is available to all our Higher Education students. You can find our brand-new University Centre and facilities in our STEM centre. Our campus is a friendly, welcoming, and inclusive place, so although you will have dedicated space to study as a Higher Education student, you will also be able to access our facilities across the campus.
