Welcome to Chichester College
A very warm welcome to Chichester College. It is more than 50 years since we welcomed our first group of students and I am really pleased that you are thinking of coming here to study at our friendly and successful college.
Whether you want to improve your skills or qualifications to get the job of your dreams or your aim is to learn something new that will help you enjoy life more, we can help you achieve your goals. Our vision is to change lives through learning and Ofsted confirmed we are an 'Outstanding' college and are indeed achieving this goal. Our overall results place us among the best colleges in the country and our student feedback is that we are ‘epic’ so we believe we are a great choice for your further learning and look forward to you joining our learning community.
Our students tell me that what they like about Chichester College is that it is a really friendly place, where you are free to be yourself and you can tell the moment you walk through the door. They say they feel stretched and challenged but also really appreciate the additional support available. Many people get this help for the first time and find it helps them be successful.
Both our campuses are easy to get to, so you can be green and leave the car at home. The Chichester campus is less than five minutes walk from the train and bus stations and only five minutes from the city centre. At the Brinsbury campus there is a bus route that brings you to the door, plus a peak time pick-up to and from Pulborough train station.
I hope you find what you need in this course guide to help you decide which course to study. If you have any questions get in touch with our Admissions team; you can ring them on 01243 786321, email info@chichester. ac.uk or pop in to the Student Centre at either campus and speak to an advisor
If you want to get first hand experience of the College, hear what our students say and speak to lecturers about courses you are interested in try and come to one of our Open events.
I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to Chichester College.
