Sandwell College offers a variety of higher education courses, without the higher costs and inconvenience of attending a university. Some of our courses are awarded by the University of Wolverhampton and have the same value as they would if you studied them at a university. Others are awarded by Pearson – a nationally recognised body whose Higher National Certificates and Diplomas are highly valued by both universities and employers.
You’ll benefit from:
• Lower tuition fees than at university
• Courses that are aimed at increasing your career prospects
• Great teaching and individualised support
• Excellent facilities close to where you live
• Easy access by bus and Metro
• Impartial advice on courses, careers and applying for finance.
All our Terms and Conditions are here.

OfS Data Tables on Admissions and Attainment
The Office for Students (OfS) is the regulatory body for higher education in England. To help provide information to students and other stakeholders, all higher education providers are required to publish a set of data about admission and attainment – Transparency Information (linked to condition of registration F1). The dataset for Sandwell College only applies to a small number of courses, compared to large universities. This means that separation of data by ethnic group or other characteristic results in very small numbers that could be misleading or even identify students. Unfortunately, this means the data you can view here is very limited and does not provide an overview of the College’s success in higher education.
The information published shows:
•The number of applications for admission on to recognised, undergraduate higher education courses that we have received from UK domiciled applicants.
•The number of offers we have made in relation to those applications.
•The number of those offers accepted and the number of those who have registered with us.
•The number of students who attained a particular degree or other academic award, or a particular level of such an award, on completion of their course with us.
It also shows these numbers by reference to:
•The gender of the individuals to which they relate
•Their socio-economic background.
It is important to note that the data presented has not been contextualised. This means, for example, that you will not be able to see from this data how many of those applying to courses met the entry criteria. It is also the case that universities and colleges will often receive many more applications than they have spaces on courses and so offer rates will necessarily be lower than application rates in those circumstances.
