With many young people and adult learners finding the rising cost of university unattainable, Solihull College has had a record year in not only welcoming higher education students to the College, but also in the numbers passing degrees with Distinctions.
Among the Oxford Brookes University Associate Degrees running at the College which covers subject areas including; Fine Art and Health and Social Care, all students have passed their Honours Degree or Foundation Degree respectively. Ten learners achieved a Distinction and four obtained First Class Honours.
The College, who created the first University Centre of its kind in the area last summer is delighted with the success of the higher education provision. In areas including Sport, Animal Care, and Early Years and Childhood Studies, learners are able to make the smooth transition from further to higher education level through popular Oxford Brookes University degrees.
Sue McGregor is Head of Curriculum at Solihull College, she comments: “We are absolutely delighted with these outstanding results from our higher education students. The College’s dedication and commitment to create and maintain happy and driven students has proved a success. Last year we saw more higher education students than ever and we very much look forward to welcoming in new learners this September”.
As well as being an Associate Partner with Oxford Brookes University, University of Warwick and Coventry University, the College offers a range of higher education courses in Business, Sport, Science, and Media, among others.
