Try something new and get active for free 

For students wanting a little extra something to sit alongside their studies, we offer MC Extra Project.

In partnership with Sport England, MC Extra is an enrichment programme which provides our students with additional and alternative activities, with everything from horse riding, to surfing!

Delivered by the MC Extra team, we listen to our student body to host requested ‘extras’ across college and within the Teesside community to make life at Middlesbrough College even more enjoyable!
