ST VINCENT COLLEGE PROVIDES STUDENTS WITH AN IDEAL ENVIRONMENT WHERE THEY CAN CONTINUE TO THRIVE.
We encourage our students to be the best they can be and to prepare them for their future, with help from our experienced teaching staff and campus facilities.
On the campus you will see that we have a tidal creek, making us the only college in the UK to have such an asset. This allows our sports courses to offer on-site water sports such as kayaking. Other facilities include the study hub, quad, sports grounds, and plenty of social spaces to take a break.
We fill our students with ambition and give the support needed to progress to the next level on whatever path they have chosen. We hold internal progression events as well as careers fairs which have helped hundreds of students on their way to success.
Students are encouraged to be independent but have access to plenty of support along the way. We offer one to one coaching, academic mentors and have a dedicated learning support team to help with learning difficulties and disabilities.
We also welcome adult students to our very extensive range of vocational courses and accredited qualifications; we have seen many success stories where people have discovered learning later in life.
Take a tour around our website and discover our provision and do not hesitate to get in touch for any further information.
St Vincent enabled me join to the BTEC level 2 course, and within weeks of being at the college they identified that I might have learning needs. They arranged for me to be assessed, and I instantly got the support I needed after being diagnosed with dyslexia. Not only did I get the support, but it helped me make sense of a lot of things. I completed BTEC level 2 and left education for a period of time.
After studying for a year at university I smoothly transferred to St Vincent College for the remaining two years where the staff and students were very welcoming.
The FDA course opened my eyes to many opportunities available after completing my studies, allowing me to identify my own strengths and weaknesses whilst providing me with further knowledge to progress in my career. Most of all, the course gave me confidence and encouraged me to aim for my goal.
I graduated with my Foundation Degree at St Vincent College in 2017. When I started the course I didn’t know what I wanted to do with it or where I wanted to go with my career. Still unsure, I went on to do a BA top-up within a year; all whilst working full-time.
In September 2018 I took a leap and I am now a full time student taking on a Master’s Degree to become a qualified Social Worker.
