City College Brighton & Hove

Why Choose City College?

As Brighton and Hove's Further Education provider, City College takes pride in transforming people’s lives. If you want to gain a vocational qualification that will provide you with the skills and experience required to get the job you want, we’re the ideal destination. We offer hundreds of courses suited to all abilities so whatever your interests, background or ability, there’s sure to be a course that suits you.

While we’re the perfect destination for practically-minded learners who want to get straight into employment by gaining ‘hands-on’ skills such as carpentry, catering or plumbing, if you’re a more ‘arty’ and creative person, you’ll thrive on our renowned Art & Design, Music Technology, Games Development, Drama and Dance courses.

Also, if you’ve struggled to find your direction at school, we can help you to find what you’re best at on Level 1 or 2 courses which cover everything from Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy to Childcare and Travel & Tourism.

Wherever your interests lie, City College’s Level 3 (A-level equivalent) qualifications allow you to specialise in subjects that you’re passionate about and this can provide either a direct route into employment or a pathway to university. The Level 3 qualifications which the college offers include BTEC National Diplomas, Advanced Apprenticeships, NVQ level 3, Advanced Diplomas or Access to Higher Education courses and any of these qualifications can be used to get into university. 1 in 5 of our students are offered university places.

We are also the biggest feeder of students into the University of Brighton and as a result, have an excellent working relationship with our local universities which means we can really help to prepare our students for uni.
