What makes us different

At University Centre Colchester, we think differently.

Small class sizes: You will benefit from small class sizes of just 15-20 students. University lectures that contain dozens (sometimes hundreds) of students are impersonal and often dull. Our student groups are personal, encourage your participation and ensure you have valuable contact time with your tutors.

One-to-one contact time: We believe your interaction with your tutor is paramount to your success. Your tutors will know you by face and name, and be available to assist you in and outside the classroom.

Employability: We don’t want to prepare you for a job you like, we want to prepare you for a career you’ll love! University Centre Colchester degrees are focused on industry skills and technical knowledge, maximising your employability and potential success. We work closely with local and national employers to give you valuable experience and that all-important leg-up when it is time to apply for jobs.
