At University Centre Somerset, our mission is to transform the lives of our students and our communities by delivering outstanding and aspirational teaching, learning and skills development.

We specialise in vocational degree-level qualifications, grounded in the real world and combined with academic rigour so that our students can achieve the highest standards set for their chosen industry sector.  Our aim is for our students to begin their careers with confidence, knowing that they have been trained in the most advanced business methods and technology.

We offer small class sizes and tutors with a real dedication to the student experience. As a result, you’ll have loads of contact with teaching staff, and ample opportunity for discussion and deliberation with your peers. What’s more, our inclusive and welcoming atmosphere gives everyone an opportunity to flourish in a supportive environment where diversity is celebrated.

What makes us different

Somerset has a rich mix of industries and our range of courses reflect this. You will find courses from sectors such as Health and Social Care, Early Years, Nuclear Engineering, Animal Management, Land based courses and many more. Each has been designed to lead to excellent career prospects and progression locally or further afield.

I loved the atmosphere of UCS. It was a friendly, positive, and supportive place to study and it was easy to ask for help and advice from my lecturers. As a result, I looked forward to coming in every day and working on my projects. I made some close friends and we would always support each other when needed.
