Start your studies in January!

11th December 2015 11:37am - Return to press releases

East Riding College is offering a wide range of January starts for people who would like to begin studying in the new year.
Spring term courses are available for people of all ages across part-time and full-time further and higher education at the College’s campuses in Beverley and Bridlington.

Assistant director Alison Gray said: “January is a time when many people turn their attention to furthering their education or looking for a new job.
“Our range of courses has something for everyone, whether you are looking to further your career or would like to explore your interest in a particular subject.”

Young people who would like to begin studying in January or would like a change from a course they are studying can choose from brickwork, business, childcare, civil engineering, engineering, technology, health and social care, hairdressing and beauty therapy, information technology, joinery, media, plumbing and vocational studies.
Those who are considering higher education but don’t want to wait until September can choose from Higher National Certificates and Diplomas in Art and Design, Business, Construction, Engineering, Fashion, Media, Music and Public Services. Anyone enrolling on higher nationals will receive a free laptop or tablet to assist with their studies.
Adults who would like to study for a degree or other higher level qualification but don’t have the required qualifications can also begin their studies in January.
The Level Three Access to Higher Education Diploma course enables learners to study part-time around their family and work commitments and provides the UCAS points and study skills required for university.
The course is also eligible for Advanced Learning Loans, meaning those aged 24 and over pay nothing until they are earning £21,000 per year - and the loan for the Access course is written off on successfully completion of a degree.
An open evening is being held for the Access course on Thursday, December 17, from 6.30pm to 8pm. Alternatively, call in to reception.
As well as these more substantial courses, there is also a range of part-time courses across a variety of courses, in subjects from accounting to construction and languages to flower arranging.
These include courses which result in a formal qualification and those for people who would just like to further their interest in a subject.
