UK Further Education Colleges

Further education provides a range of opportunities for students to participate in academic or vocational (professional) courses that are designed with specific industries in mind. These courses also offer a route into higher education that offers some real advantages for students who have not come through the UK secondary-school system. Get in touch and we'll walk you through it.

What subject areas can I study at a Further Education College?

FE colleges offer vocational training for people who want careers in accountancy, electrical work, plumbing, mechanics, hair styling & beauty therapy, secretarial work, hotel & catering, travel & tourism and many many more. Contact you local GetSet centre for advice of the full range of courses offered.

Can I study English at an FE college?

Yes. Many FE colleges have language departments offering various types of English language programmes for overseas students.

How do I know which course to choose, there are so many of them?

You may feel confused by some of the course titles available but we feel it is more important to focus on what they actually do, rather than the often confusing terminology! Let GetSet deal with the terminology – as we have an intimate knowledge of the institutions we can advise you as to which of them exactly suit your needs.

Where will I live?

Most FE colleges will arrange a homestay family for the duration of the course though a small number have their own on campus accomodation. GetSet can also help you get into private student accomodation near the college depending on location.
