About us

Craven College, Skipton is a great place to study – most importantly because our recent Higher Education Quality Review of our courses awarded us the highest possible rating, outperforming many major universities.

We offer HNC’s, Foundation Degrees with an option to convert them into a full honours degree at Craven College or another college/university. To ensure all of our courses are industry-relevant, we write them in consultation with employers and also add key employment skills such as time-management, ICT and numeracy into your programme.

Graduation 2022

Craven College recognised the success of its Higher Education graduates at the 2022 Craven College Graduation Ceremony held in Skipton. The class of 2022, who had studied most of the duration of their degrees during covid lockdowns and via remote learning, celebrated their hard work and determination along with family, friends and VIP guests of the College at the beautiful locations of Skipton Castle and Holy Trinity Church. The special ceremony saw Craven College’s Higher Education students graduating from Accounting, Business & Management, Animal Management, Aviation, Land-based Studies, Therapeutic Counselling, and Young Children’s Learning & Development sectors.
