Thinking about returning to learning?

We know there's no such thing as a typical student.

Our students come from a range of backgrounds - some are studying for a career change after an established first career, some are studying whilst working or while juggling family commitments.

SRUC's 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.
