What’s stopping you?

Higher Education can unlock a new career and a new life. However, we understand it is natural to be hesitant when making the decision to study at University level.

Some of the reasons for thinking a university level education is not within your reach may not be accurate. These examples show how to overcome what may be stopping you from pursuing your dream career.

‘It’s too expensive’

Thanks to a range of loans and bursaries, university level courses are available to people of all backgrounds.

Typically, students take out a tuition fee loan to cover their course fees. This covers the full cost of tuition, meaning there is no upfront fee to pay and your repayments will be based on your income after you finish your course, not what you borrowed. Plus, there is no age limit for tuition fee loans.

‘I’ve been out of education for too long’

Your experience outside of the classroom may be as valuable as those in it, due to the fact many of our degrees are focussed around a particular career. Our Access to Higher Education Diploma is also available to students who would benefit from honing their study skills or gaining enough experience to apply for a university level course. You should not assume that university-level courses are not for you. Get in touch with us to explore your options!

‘Universities are big and overwhelming’

As a student at Farnborough you will be studying on a quiet campus with small class sizes; and if you studied at college here you will already know several of the teachers and classrooms too.

‘I don’t think I’ll have enough time’

Some of our degrees are taught with part-time attendance, while our professional courses are taught in the evenings. Some of our courses are also tailored to fit around your work commitments too, be sure to ask us about how your work, family and study commitments can be balanced.

‘I have young children to look after’

Thanks to our onsite nursery, Bookworms, you can have your children cared for close by while you study. Ofsted confirmed the Good standard of the nursery in 2015, which has a baby unit, toddler room, preschool room and outdoor play area.
