Why choose Middlesbrough College?

Your choice of college will play an important part in shaping your future career ambitions.

As a school leaver, it’s important you choose a place that is right for you – a college that helps you achieve your goals and pushes you to succeed. Our recent results place us in the top 25% of colleges nationally for A level progress, vocational course progress and apprenticeship success.

Alongside A Levels at our purpose-built sixth form MC6, we along offer vocational courses across a broad range of industries such as sport, hairdressing and engineering. If you’d like to train whilst in employment, we also offer apprenticeships with our training and apprenticeship company, Northern Skills Group.

Middlesbrough College offers a different environment to a school sixth form. You will learn in a mature environment developing your confidence and independence for university study or future employment. With courses available from entry level upwards across a range of industries, you’ll be able to find a full-time course perfect for you. Last year, 96% of our students progressed to a positive destination on completion of their course; into further study or higher education, an apprenticeship or into employment.

We understand that coming to college is about more than just getting a qualification; it’s about meeting new people, learning new skills, and growing as a person. That’s why we offer an extensive enrichment programme and endless employment and enterprise activities for you to get involved with! From our student council to elite sports academies and work experience programmes, you’ll be developing skills both in and out the classroom!
