University Level Centre

Interested in studying university-level courses? Then take a look at our University Level Prospectus 19-20

Many students find it more convenient and cost effective to study close to home, fitting studies around their personal and part-time job commitments. We deliver higher education to over 500 students, in more than 20 subjects across a variety of sectors and subjects – all validated by our partner universities and awarding bodies.

As a university-level student you’ll have access to dedicated facilities in our University Centre and a range of one-to-one support opportunities to help guide you through your course and make the most of your time with us.

Chesterfield is a great place to be a student. From bars, coffee shops and restaurants to a cinema, theatres and several parks; there’s always plenty to do when you’re not studying. We’re also located on the edge of the beautiful Peak District for those who prefer a picturesque walk in the countryside or a visit to one of our famous stately homes such as Chatsworth House.

There’s no such thing as a ‘typical’ HE student at Chesterfield College. From 18 year olds who have just received their A Level results to adults returning to education later in life, we have a range of courses and flexible study options to suit everyone. When you join the Chesterfield

College University Centre you will mix with young people, employed people studying part-time and parents fitting in a degree around family commitments. Our University Centre isn’t ‘typical’ either. When you join college you will be part of a close-knit group of students, benefitting from small class sizes and more dedicated one-to-one time with tutors.

At Chesterfield College we offer a variety of courses which include foundation degrees, HNC/HNDs/HNs, professional courses, full honours degrees and more.

Through our partnerships with the University of Derby, Sheffield Hallam University and Pearson, you can be sure that the qualification you receive is accredited by a nationally-recognised university or professional awarding body.

We also work in partnership with many different employers and industry experts to keep our courses relevant andup-to-date, so that when you leave us you’ll be equipped with the skills and knowledge to help you stand out from the crowd in a competitive job market.

In 2017 we were awarded a ‘Confidence’ rating by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA), the highest posible rating by the UK’s body responsible for quality in Higher Education.
