4 Reasons to study a Higher Education course at University Centre Grantham College

Did you know you could study a Higher Education course with us?

1)   Our Dedicated University Centre

Grantham College offers more than just further education with Higher Education courses available as well. But don’t worry as a Higher Education student here at Grantham College, you have your very own dedicated University Centre and University Facilities. Enjoy lectures and seminars in classrooms just for you, complete your coursework with your very own computer facilities and take a little bit of time to relax with your friends in your own common room complete with coffee making facilities for those long nights of coursework. 


2)   Smaller Class Sizes

Whereas those bigger Universities have lectures with the whole group which normally consists of 60+, at University Centre Grantham College you’ll have the luxury of smaller class sizes even for lectures. These class sizes give you the advantage of increased contact time with your tutor and a more personal approach to your learning.


3)   Closer to home

Did you know 25% of students don’t feel confident to move away from home to University? Well with a course at University Centre Grantham College you won’t have to worry about that. You’ll be able to live at home when you study although there is accommodation available should you want to stay onsite. There’s also the advantage of fitting your learning around commitments that you may already have such as a part time job and of course you’ll be in a comfortable familiar environment. 

4)   More affordable University Courses

High tuition fees for University can be a big worry but with a Higher Education course at Grantham College you won’t need to worry. Our courses are cheaper than most Universities but are still taught to high academic standards. You can still apply for student finance as well if you do study with us. With a course at Grantham, you’ll be able to learn locally whilst learning at a more affordable rate.
