About Us

Providing career focused courses, apprenticeships and education

Introduction

City College Southampton is a general further education college in Hampshire, providing career led courses, apprenticeships and education for young people and adults.

Located in the centre of Southampton the campus has undergone a £48m investment in new facilities and equipment, allowing students to learn and work in real life working environments using industry standard equipment. Students can use this experience to start, build and develop their careers beyond education.

The College offers:

  • Study Programmes - academic, technical and vocational courses for school leavers
  • Apprenticeships at intermediate, advanced and higher levels for young people and adults
  • Adult full and part-time courses, including distance learning and higher education
  • Professional training and CPD for businesses through short courses, adult learning and higher education

City College has particular specialisms in Marine, Engineering, Construction, Hospitality, Travel and Tourism and the Creative and Performing Arts. The college has close links with employers in the city resulting in our students having excellent access to jobs, apprenticeship vacancies and work experience.

The College is very easy to get to as it is in the centre of Southampton with excellent transport links by bus, train, ferry, bike or car. The city centre shops, cafes and amenities are all within a 15 minute walk through parks from the college.
