Fantastic facilities, giving you the practical skills you'll need in your career

If you’re into fashion, design, IT, performing arts or media, we have the kind of leading-edge workspaces you’ll need to flex your creative talents. Recently, we’ve heavily invested in our photography studio, television and radio studios, and fully equipped Mac suites for graphic design. We also have a state-of-the-art virtual reality room! When your masterpiece is ready, there’s an inspiring central atrium space for exhibitions and a cinema room for showcasing work.

There are loads of communal spaces inside and out (when the weather’s nice!) for studying or hanging out with friends. There’s a comprehensive library and IT facilities for quiet study, as well as cafes and The Cherwell restaurant to grab a bite to eat in between classes or have a sit-down meal with friends.

There’s no better place in Oxfordshire for motor vehicle study. Our on-site motor vehicle centre has the latest engine- diagnostic facilities and vehicle lifts. Our link with Hyundai means learning is modern and relevant as you’ll be training on newly registered vehicles. Our teaching staff have excellent links with the motorsport industry, which can help you progress into apprenticeships and jobs. Our graduates have gone on to work in every Formula 1 team in the country!

My tutors are really supportive. They’re really flexible and, if I have a problem or I didn’t understand something in class, I can always email them or talk to them in person to ask them to go through something with me again. Michelle, Motor Vehicle Maintenance Level 3
