Is Higher Education Right for You? Learning Zone Advertisement Feature
HIGHER education is the right option for many young people, taking their study to a new level, building skills and opening up new opportunities.
But a university with high fees may not appeal or be accessible if they did not reach their academic potential in school.
With a small friendly environment and plenty of one-to-one time with tutors, City College Coventry offers an excellent alternative.
"We have only a few places left to fill," explained Christina Fowers, Vice Principal, Quality and Curriculum at City College.
"These are in Music Production, Visual Communication and Performing Arts. So young people, who may want to change track and make the move in to higher education at City College Coventry this year need to act quickly."
Endorsed by students The students themselves have given City College a ringing endorsement.
In this year's National Study Survey 100% of students said they were satisfied with the quality of their course and 93% said the teaching was good.
Celebrating success The staff and tutors at City College Coventry are extremely proud of the achievements of students, each year hosting a celebratory graduation ceremony in the wonderful surroundings of Coventry Cathedral.
Friends and family are warmly welcomed.
This year's graduation is taking place next week, on Friday October 26 and will be addressed by Lewis Moody, who was part of the 2003 World Cup winning England Rugby Union team.
"Lewis will give the students an insight into the characteristics that helped him reach the very top of his profession," continued Christina.
"Our goal is always to inspire the students, encouraging them to believe that with hard work and determination they can realise their ambitions."
Enriching their study "Enhancing the experience of our students is at the heart of everything we do," said Christina.
