Through our partnership with The Open University, we can deliver job-focused degrees across a range of sectors that are shorter in duration and more cost-effective for those who want to study. All University courses are taught on-site at our Middlehaven Campus in our dedicated University Centre.
Our courses are a fantastic practical alternative to a traditional University that will help you get you job ready. You’ll benefit from small class sizes which will give you all the support you need, including more teaching hours and regular 1:1 feedback on your work and progress. We also offer a free laptop loan scheme- MC Click! This is available for all our University students.
Students will graduate on completion of their qualification in a prestigious ceremony held at Middlesbrough Town Hall.
Our courses are industry focused and have been designed with employers, so you’ll get the skills that employers are looking for now.

Higher Education success stories
I knew it was something I wanted to go into and I knew Middlesbrough College had a really good reputation for its travel, tourism and aviation courses and that studying there would take me on the right path.
I’ve gained a real insight into professional teaching through this course, and the support I’ve received has been amazing.
The modules in international business and human resources in particular have helped me in the workplace as I’ve been able to apply my knowledge to real working situations.
The tutor support I have received on this course has been outstanding; they will do anything to help you.
There are always opportunities available throughout the course to develop your skill set and gain experience in different areas.
I would wholeheartedly recommend studying at Middlesbrough College. The College has a lot to offer, and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my experience here.
It does feel a bit strange to be back in education and working towards a totally different career – it is a great stepping stone for my chosen career and the staff are fantastic!
