Everything you need to know

In some subjects yes, classes could be mixed age groups with 19+ students working alongside 16–18. This is usually in very practical subjects, for example, Construction classes, Hair and Beauty.

In some subjects, we have adult-only groups, e.g. Access, Counselling but it depends on the course you are studying.

We offer a range of English and maths qualifications for adults that take place during the day or on an evening. You can study at one of our main centres (Huddersfield or Dewsbury) or in the community. These courses are usually free to anyone who is eligible to study in the UK.

That depends on the course you have chosen to study. Some courses could be eligible for fee remission. Our Customer Service Team will assess you based on some basic personal information to see if you qualify for a free course. If you do have to pay, then it could be that you can pay in instalments, or the course could be eligible for a student loan.

The college Information Team can provide guidance with this, please contact them on 01484 437070 or email

All students can access our careers service for information, advice and guidance. The Careers Team will help you complete your application and personal statement.

Some courses which are funded by central government; under devolution deals, have been transferred to funding from local areas.


If you live in one of these areas (e.g Greater Manchester, Liverpool City Region), we cannot claim any funding for your studies, therefore we will contact you and reserve the right to ask you to pay full course fees , or you can withdraw your request to join the course.
