The College

Here at Kirklees College we are dedicated to providing students with the best education experience available.

Founded in 2008, Kirklees College came to life through a merger between Dewsbury College and Huddersfield Technical College

Both institutions had illustrious pasts of their own but together as Kirklees College will provide a brighter future for our students.

Kirklees College is one of the biggest colleges in the country and we offer a vast range of courses and study options for applicants to choose from.

Based in the heart of Yorkshire we have multiple learning centres across Kirklees, serving the local population, communities and businesses.
