Dean’s Welcome

I am delighted that you are interested in Cheshire College – South & West to continue your studies, and that you are considering our higher education study options. 

The College offers a range of courses at levels 4, 5 and 6 which will enable you to continue to learn and develop your higher-level skills and knowledge. We offer a diverse range of higher education opportunities including foundation degrees, full degrees, HNCs and HNDs, both through working closely with our University partners (University of Chester, University of Derby and University of Wolverhampton) and as an approved provider of a wide range of Pearson HNC and HND qualifications.

Whether you are progressing from a level 3 course at the College, returning to education as a mature student, wish to change career or enhance your current career opportunities, or simply wish to develop your knowledge and skills in a subject or specialism, there is a course for you. Come along and see for yourself! Our open evenings are a great opportunity to talk to staff and discuss what we can offer you, and what support is available. 

When you choose Cheshire College- South & West you will have the opportunity to study locally at one of our three state-of-the-art campuses based in Cheshire. Our courses provide a rich and engaging experience, including wider learning opportunities such as work experience and course-related trips. We also understand that our students live busy lives and so we offer excellent support facilities and have put in place academic practices which help ensure that you have the support required to excel in your studies.

Upon successful completion of your course, you will be invited to graduate and celebrate your achievements with staff, friends and family. We are proud to work with, stand with you, and to acknowledge and celebrate your success.
