Degrees awarded by:

Career-focused Degrees

We focus on giving you the skills and knowledge to kick-start your career, which is why many of our courses are more hands-on than you might expect.

Classroom-based Lectures

Our class sizes are similar to college, which means you won’t get lost in the crowd or feel like just a number with us.

Small Campus Experience

Our small campus is full of plants, natural light, and new facilities that will help you feel good while studying. Plus, you’ll have exclusive access to University Centre study spaces in the College.

Plenty of Personalised Support

Studying a degree at a small institution means your lecturers will know all your strengths and weaknesses, and give you valuable feedback and support to help you go further.

Home of the Two-year Accelerated Degree

Yes, you can study a full degree in two years!

We’ve taken traditional three-year degrees and condensed them into two. We only charge two years’ tuition, and degrees are available in various subjects.

With these degrees, you can:

• Start your career or masters course a year sooner

• Save money on the costs associated with being a student

• Save money by paying for just two years’ tuition fees

Gemma

BA (HONS) GRAPHIC DESIGN

“I studied a foundation degree at another university before I came here, as I found there wasn’t enough support. Farnborough had a more personal touch – my tutors were brilliant and I had lots of one-to-one support thanks to the smaller class sizes.”

Charlie

BSC (HONS) PSYCHOLOGY AND CRIMINOLOGY

“There are many departments here that have helped and supported me through my courses, from the library to Bookworms Nursery. The nursery is on campus and works around my timetable to ensure I can attend all lectures.”

Accommodation – Your Home!

One of the reasons for our popularity with local students is that they can save money by living at home during their studies. Great transport links and free parking means we have no need to offer accommodation!

Not only does living at home give you a great opportunity to save money, but you can also keep any part-time jobs, hobbies, family commitments or the same group of friends while studying for a degree.
