Higher Education Degrees
Myerscough is one of the UK’s largest land-based and sports colleges, offering degrees in more than 20 exciting subjects. We work in partnership with the University of Central Lancashire and are amongst the top UK institutions in the sector for student satisfaction - helped by exceptional resources and a unique countryside location. Our QAA Higher Education Review puts us amongst the top institutions in the country for quality learning opportunities and good practice teaching. We are very proud that 97% of Myerscough degree students progress to further study or employment.
Myerscough College offers a wide range of vocational courses in a choice of land-based and sports subjects - from entry level practical programmes up to three A-Level equivalent Diplomas, ideal for progression to university. We provide 'outstanding' care and support, excellent success rates, superb progression opportunities and strong links with employers. Plus - all our courses focus on academic knowledge supported by practical skills, making you more employable.
If you feel that you don’t want to attend College full-time but would prefer to get a job, earn a decent wage and gain qualifications whilst at work, then Myerscough College has a wide range of Apprenticeship options available to you. As a national provider of work based training within the land based sector we offer a choice of Apprenticeships which embrace a wide range of occupational roles and sectors.
Our 14-16 vocational courses provide a practical alternative to GCSEs for students in Year 9 choosing their options or students currently in Year 10 who are looking for alternative education when progressing in to Year 11. The courses run alongside GCSE options taken at school. Students starting Year 10 study a one year course and then ‘top up’ the course in Year 11 at one of Myerscough’s Learning Centres in the North West, starting Year 11 students can complete a one year course in all of the subject areas on offer which you can see in the 14-16 Education prospectus
Whether you want to develop your current skills, indulge your hobby or just feel like trying something different, Myerscough offers some fantastic short courses across all our subject areas. Some courses are purely for pleasure while others lead to a specific qualification and the opportunity to progress to further courses within your chosen subject – leading to additional NVQ or City and Guilds qualifications.
Funded Adult Skills
Are you looking to take up a new leisure activity, boost your career with professional qualifications or improve your skills? Whether you are investing in yourself or looking to receive funding for your training we have the right short course for you at Myerscough College.
Traineeships are an ideal opportunity for young people who are motivated to get a job but who lack the skills and experience that employers look for. If you have been unsuccessful applying for Apprenticeships due to lack of skills and experience then you might be a good candidate for a traineeship.
