We are very happy to say we are the only college in Birmingham which can offer an on-site nursery. So you can concentrate in class without any concerns for your child, as they will be in the same building as you. As a student we can also offer you a discounted price.
We also have a common room with vending machines where students can relax during their break and chat to one another. There is also a little shop directly next to us so you can get any extra snacks or drinks from there.
There is also a library and a computer room where you can go to complete any assignments after your lectures. Which is open 9-5 on Monday - Friday. Where a member of staff will be there to assist you with any needs/concerns. Or as mentioned earlier you could walk to Birmingham library where you can complete work there.
As a lot of our students have to work we appreciate it may be hard to attend classes on certain days which is why we have made our course very flexible. To ensure we get the best out of our students.
