University Centre South Devon (UCSD) has many opportunities for those that need to consider alternative options or have changed their mind and now want to discover their options to study a degree.
The HESA Graduate Outcomes Survey has shown that South Devon College supports more full-time undergraduates into full-time skilled employment than any other college in the South West through its University Centre. When looking at colleges across the country, South Devon College places third. This combined with UCSD having the highest possible rating of Gold from the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) means your studying experience will be the best around and lead you onto an incredibly successful future.
UCSD has launched a range of new courses as a result of its continuous growth. This includes the Hospitality Management Higher Apprenticeship which has been developed in partnership with Hilton Hotels, ensuring you get the most insightful experience of working in the hospitality industry.
Choosing to study locally can be a result of many reasons. Students choose UCSD not only to be near their existing commitments but because their studies can fit flexibly around them too. Flexible study programmes at UCSD mean you can continue to work or look after your family alongside your studies without the significant impact studying full-time might have.
The University Centre is built on the foundation of a community of experts and features a dedicated Student Support Hub with help always on hand. This means that the team can provide a much higher percentage of students with a great level of tailored support across both study and non-study related areas, such as finance, accommodation, and academic support to name a few.
You may qualify for a range of financial support options to help support you with your studies. You can apply for a student loan to help pay tuition fees and a Maintenance Loan to help with living expenses. UCSD also offers a bursary of up to £1000 (conditions apply) to help you with the costs associated with studying a degree.
UCSD also offer fantastic support and opportunities for employability in particular, with many industry links.
These great foundations to your studies are complemented with access to a wide range of high-quality facilities, including those in the South Devon College building. The new and innovative £17 million Hi Tech & Digital Centre is also open to UCSD students. It provides a visionary facility for higher education and training support towards ever-expanding hi tech, manufacturing, digital and creative sectors across Torbay, South Devon and wider regions.
As well as dedicated spaces in the new Centre for higher education and university level studies for a range of courses, there’s also great opportunity for those with an entrepreneurial spirit to kickstart their business ideas with office spaces available to rent through the Torbay Development Agency (TDA) on the top floor. You’d then continue to have access to all the College facilities to support your own business.
