Why Us?

If it’s subject variety you’re after, we’ve got it. With more than 1,000 courses available from entry to degree level, we offer the widest range of academic and vocational qualifications in the South West.

If location is your priority, look no further. Our four main centres are based across the city, meaning you’re never far from the beating heart of Bristol, recently named as Britain’s Best City To Live In thanks to its

“great shopping, buzzing social scene and glorious scenery” Sunday Times

If world class facilities are your top concern, we have them. Each of our centres offers excellent facilities including purpose-built, well-equipped classrooms and workshops.  We also partner up with a wide range of local companies and organisations to offer courses in other venues across Bristol, enabling you to immerse yourself further in the city. 

If experienced teaching staff is most important to you, they’re here. We’re one of the biggest employers in Bristol, employing around 1,800 staff, including the most experienced and committed tutors you could hope to meet. 

Interested in our track record? Many of our students have gone on to become Cambridge graduates, Oxford graduates, actors, musicians, inventors, Oscar winners, BAFTA winners, conservationists, scientists and entrepreneurs.

Don’t just take our word for it. Ask one of the 25,000 students that choose to study with us each year.  And if that’s still not enough to whet your appetite, you need only take a look at our student profile to see that we really do have something for everyone.
