Late Applications/Clearing at Middlesbrough College

It’s not too late to study a degree with us in September!

Thinking about your options for September? Middlesbrough College can help you to study your dream degree!

If you want to study for a degree this September and you haven’t applied yet or you have changed your mind on where you want to live or the course you want to study, don’t stress - there’s still time!

We are still taking late applications for our higher education programmes for a 2020 start.

We offer courses in the arts, education, engineering, business, catering & hospitality, health & social care, travel & tourism, housing & design, sport and computing. You will also have access to our state of the art industry standard facilities designed to support you as you prepare for work or further study.

We are still accepting applications to study with us in September! You don’t need to apply through UCAS- you can apply directly to us.


Here are top reasons as to why you should consider studying a university course with us:

Our university courses are a lot cheaper than most traditional universities which means you’ll save money on your course fees without having to compromise on the quality of your education. 

By staying local and close to home you’ll also be able to save money on pricey accommodation costs as rent and bills can add up. This way you can manage your money and save for your future.

At Middlesbrough College we offer an amazing support service so no matter what personal issues may arise during your time with us, we can help to support you. We have a range of teams that cover additional learning support, careers support and counselling.

Our university courses are employment focussed and we work closely with local employers, allowing you to build a network of local contacts and gain a range of work experience, giving you an impressive CV and an edge when it comes to applying for graduate jobs. Our university courses are validated by The Open University and Pearson. Both are established and highly respected international education providers, so if you want to broaden your horizons once you have completed your course, our degrees give you the ability to do so.


Here at Middlesbrough College we offer smaller class sizes compare to larger universities which means you’ll have more teaching hours and more contact time with your tutors, including 1:1 feedback on your work and progress.
