University Centre Colchester | Welcome from the Principal

Welcome from the Principal

University Centre Colchester’s huge strength is in delivering professional and technical undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes, which genuinely prepare students for exciting jobs and careers.

Our degrees are informed and endorsed by employers and taught by staff with extensive industry experience. As a result, our students succeed in developing the skills and knowledge most valued by employers, evidenced by high levels of relevant employment at the end of their studies. In conversations with students, it’s apparent how highly they prize small teaching groups and ready access to academic staff who know them well and provide individualised support and guidance.

For over fifty years we have equipped thousands of students with the wide range of skills they have needed to realise their aspirations. We’re proud to have helped students of all backgrounds to exceed their potential. While studying with us, you will embark on a journey of self-discovery, but at the same time you can expect the highest levels of academic, pastoral and employability support, giving you the best chance of success, now and in the future.

But don’t just take our word for it! Come and see us at an Open Evening. We’d love you to meet our staff and students who can tell you first-hand about the fantastic experience you too could have within the friendly and welcoming University Centre Colchester community. And if you’ve missed our Open Days, please call 01206 712432 to arrange your visit.
