Thinking About Returning To Learning?

Our students come from a range of backgrounds, urban and rural, direct from school or college, after an established first career, or studying whilst working or with family commitments.

We understand that for many, the chance to dedicate all their time to being a student is impractical or that you may wish to take small steps to achieving a qualification.

Our courses are designed to enable flexible study patterns with the opportunity to cash in your achievements at certain stages (for example we offer both an HNC and HND as stand alone awards within a degree programme).

Also our campus learning communities provide a supportive environment in which to learn, with an excellent staff to student ratio that ensures that help is always available.

Please contact our recruitment team if you need any advice, or better still - come along to one of our open days to meet the teaching staff and learn more about SRUC.
