On Saturday 4th March, the College will be opening the doors to their Lichfield Campus for a dedicated Higher Education open event.

Working in partnership with Staffordshire University and the University of Wolverhampton, the College offer a wide range of qualifications, from HNDs to Foundation Degrees, to BA and BSc Hons. Learners can choose from a variety of courses in subjects including Animal Science, Equine Behaviour, Training and Performance, Event Management, Leadership and Management, Music Performance Technologies, Film and Television Production Technology, Musical Theatre and many more.

Higher Education success rates at the College currently stand at an impressive 95% and previous learners have gone on to enjoy successful and fulfilling careers, with some choosing to study at postgraduate level and others establishing their own businesses. This is perhaps no coincidence when you take into account that learners are taught by industry experts with a wealth of experience, which means as well as a qualification, you’ll develop high level practical and professional skills.

Best of all, with the option to study for some courses part-time and fees that are often over £2000 lower than most universities, higher education has never been more accessible.

The event on 4th March is the College’s first dedicated Higher Education event and is shaping up to be an exciting affair, with existing HE learners on hand to share their stories and give prospective learners an insight into student life @southstaffs. Expert staff from the College and the Universities will also be on hand to answer any questions about student finance and how to ‘sign-up’ for September. Visitors will also be able to explore the fantastic facilities at the Lichfield Campus, take part in student-led ‘have-a-go’ activities and get advice on their next steps.

Applications for courses starting this September are still being accepted, so why not come along and take the first steps towards achieving your ambitions!
