Northern College

The Northern College is a residential college dedicated to the education and training of men and women who are without formal qualifications and are seeking to return to learning. It also offers training for those who are active in community and voluntary groups as well as in trade unions .

The Northern College is committed to equal opportunities for all, and offers an outstanding learning environment in a residential setting, with a high level of support which enables students to make maximum use of their time and the facilities available.

It has a national reputation for excellence and has been judged Outstanding by OfSTED.

We are a small college, but have over 6,000 student registrations a year. People come to us from many different backgrounds. They are men and women of all ages from 19 to 90, often with families and dependants, some single parents accompanied by young children, many familiar with unemployment or part-time, low paid jobs.

The College's educational programmes provide a direct route from basic education through to higher education for those who want it. Whether students wish to learn something new, brush up on things they have forgotten, make a better contribution to a group or organisation to which they belong, or get a degree, the Northern College has something for them. Most of our courses are short, intensive residential courses of 3 to 5 days running both during the week and at weekends. We offer a one year Access to HE course and also have some non-residential provision at college.

Finally, we believe that our students deserve the best we can provide, and that we as a College, must do our utmost to secure the best for them.
