A Level results day marks a huge turning point in many young peoples’ lives. 

With many considering higher education as their next step, Joan Coe, Executive Director at South Leicestershire College discusses top five reasons to study a university-level course at college:

3 Top quality qualifications
“Here at South Leicestershire College, we are certified by Ofsted and the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education.”

4 Strong university links
We have close partnerships with Coventry University, De Montfort University, the University of Warwick and the University of West London, we work hard to ensure we provide high quality qualifications that really prepare young people for the world of work.”

5 Courses to match your career goals
