Welcome to Nelson and Colne College’s University Centre. Launched in 2017, our centre builds on the College’s outstanding reputation for teaching and learning to offer adults in East Lancashire and beyond the opportunity to gain a University level qualification flexibly and affordably.
We offer a range of higher level qualifications (HNC/Ds), which are widely recognised for professional development and career progression. Not only can an HNC/D help you climb the career ladder quicker and improve your job prospects, it is a well cited statistic that graduates can expect to earn £100,000+ more over their lifetimes than someone who didn’t go to university.
Nelson and Colne College is registered with the Office for Students, a process which ensures that we meet challenging requirements relating to quality, student protection, financial sustainability, and have demonstrated that we deliver well designed courses that provide a high quality academic experience for all students.
In this section of the website, you will find information about the range of courses on offer, what flexible learning options are available to you, funding, and more. To speak to a member of our team, or to start your journey towards gaining a HE qualification, contact 01282 440272.
