Attending a university is expensive, time-consuming and – for some people – impossible to fit into their family life or professional circumstances. But there are other ways of gaining a university-level qualification.

Central Campus offers a variety of higher education courses, without the higher costs and inconvenience of enrolling at a university. Some of these qualifications are awarded by a university and have the same value as they would if you studied them at a university. Others are awarded by nationally-recognised examination boards and are equally valued by both universities and employers.

All of the Higher Education courses that we run are specifically aimed at increasing your employability and career prospects; the knowledge that you’ll gain here can be directly applied to the world of work, and most of our HE students study while in full or part time employment. We'll do our best to help you to excel, with lots of support available to help you with your studies, and advice on how to organise your life to give you the best chance of success.

But it's not just about study. Central Campus offers a welcoming environment where you will quickly feel at home and an active Students Union organising events, sports and trips. At Sandwell College, you'll have a lot to look forward to!
