Interested in studying university-level courses?
Many students find it more convenient and cost effective to study a university-level course close to home, fitting studies around their work and family commitments. We deliver Higher Education in more than 20 subject areas across a variety of sectors and industries. All of our courses are validated by our partner universities and professional awarding bodies.
As a Higher Education student you’ll have access to dedicated facilities in our University Centre, as well as a range of one-to-one support 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 life. 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 including 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 and up-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 possible rating by the UK’s body responsible for quality in Higher Education.
