What makes us different

Barnsley College is an inspiring and exciting place to study. Everything we do here puts our students first. Our mission is to give you the skills and support you need to go on to achieve great things.

Our undergraduate courses are structured to maximise your development and give you the knowledge you’ll need to progress on to further study or get a job in the industry you choose. Many courses include work placements so you will gain real-life industry experience and have a CV to be proud of when you graduate.

You will be taught in excellent facilities by expert staff who are passionate about their subjects. Students are supported every step of the way through smaller class sizes; many students say this personal touch is the reason they chose to study here rather than anywhere else.

Our courses are taught in a range of campuses depending on the course you are studying and most are just a short walk from the town centre.
