Quality teaching and learning as standard

Your voice will be heard

By studying with us at the Centre for University Level Studies you will enjoy the benefits of a personalised approach to teaching and a much more supportive environment than traditional universities. Students enjoy small class sizes, one to one support, flexible studying and a comprehensive tutorial system. Studying with us means your voice won’t get lost in a busy lecture theatre.

We offer opportunities to have your say and feedback on your course and experience at college and we pride ourselves in making sure that your voice is heard and that your opinion matters. There are dedicated members of staff who will ensure that you are represented and supported throughout your time here. The Student Engagement Officer will be your first point of contact for all elements of your experience and will be able to signpost you to any support services you need.
