Transition to the University Centre

If you are considering the transition from a Level 3 course to the University Centre we have gathered some resources to help you prepare your progression route.

The University Centre is continuing to deliver classes on a face-to-face basis, unless government guidance relating to the Covid-19 pandemic changes. We have safety measures in place and will be following guidance on social distancing to make sure students and staff stay safe.
