Our partnership with Somerset College

We know how important it is to land that first job after you graduate. We know you might want to learn in your local area. We know you may want to study a specialist degree – using unique facilities – that’s not available nationally. Which is why, through our Academic Partnerships, we collaborate with regional, national and international partners to create a hands-on learning experience that simply can’t be found on large university campuses. 

With 15 partner colleges and two partner institutions, the great work we’ve done with our partners won us the Queen’s Anniversary prize. And in 2005, we were awarded a £4.5 million grant to carry on the good work.

So, you get the best of both worlds. A supportive learning environment as part of a close-knit community, and a university-level qualification awarded by us. And, as well as the facilities and services your college provides, we’ll give you all the additional support and resources you need. You’ll automatically become a member of our Students’ Union, too.

One of our partners delivers this course – so please visit their website for full course details, entry requirements, tuition fees and full information on what student life is like there.
