Take that first step to a whole new career or progress in the one you already have with our range of University level courses.

You will be taught on-site at our Middlehaven Campus by experienced professionals. We offer more teaching hours than a traditional university and our class sizes are smaller, meaning you’ll receive more contact time with your tutor including 1:1 feedback on your work and progress.

Many of our qualifications are vocationally orientated and designed for employment, so you’ll also gain the skills employers are looking for, a strong work ethic and the confidence to progress in the workplace.

Bursary scheme

A little extra from Middlesbrough College!

Students on a 3 year full degree programme will be eligible for a bursary scheme of £1000 across their first and second year of study. This is not means-tested and is split into yearly instalments across the duration of the course. This can be used as you wish, but can help with course books, equipment, travel and accommodation.
