Unsure what course to study?

You just need to answer three simple questions about your study preferences, interests and predicted grades and we can suggest courses that might suit you.

  • 1 Study type
  • 2 Your Interests
  • 3 Your Grades
Question 1

How would you prefer to study?

Question 2

What are your interests?

Question 3

What grades have you achieved or are predicted?

These results are a suggestion of courses you may want to explore but are by no means a definitive list and individual entry requirements do apply.

Kits

Apply for a laptop to help with your studies

Chromebooks are fast, light and have an all day battery, and you can now benefit from a College discount to get yourself a brand new Chromebook for your college work.

  • Your own, fully insured technology.
  • Pay for a discounted device out right or with affordable payments over 12 months.
  • Own your device when payments are complete.

What is a Chromebook?

A Chromebook is a personal computer that is like a laptop — but its not the same. A Chromebook runs the Google Chrome browser. Anything you can do with the Google Chrome browser, you can do with a Chromebook. But because its not a laptop there are some things that it can’t do. For example you can’t play any Windows games.

Is a Chromebook right for me?

The answer is probably yes. Unless you need to run Windows only software like the Adobe Suite, then Chromebooks are highly recommended for you.

Chromebook specification:

  • Acer Chromebook 311 C733-C2VX
  • 11.6” Screen
  • Intel Celeron N4000 Processor

What is the difference between a laptop and a chromebook?

Chromebook

  • Very fast to turn on - Almost instant power on - a bit like a mobile phone
  • No maintenance - there is no anti-virus software to update and there are no system updates
  • Battery will last all day - the battery in most chromebooks will last 10 hours.
  • Not expensive - Chromebooks are usually much cheaper than laptops
  • All of your files are stored in the cloud - there is no local storage so you need to be connected to WiFi all the time
  • Very easy to use - You simply login with your Google ID and password
  • Runs all of the Google apps - Getting access to your college email and Google classroom is easy
  • Cannot run some programs - you can't run some programs like the Adobe Suite or Windows games

Laptop

  • Can run all Windows - a laptop can run all your favourite programs including games and niche software like the Adobe Suite
  • Runs all of the Google apps - you just need to install the chrome browser and then sign into it with your Google account
  • Large local storage - you can store files locally on your laptop
  • Battery does not always last all day - may laptops, especially the cheaper ones, have a small battery that will usually last just 3 hours
  • Expensive - a good laptop will cost a lot more than a chromebook
  • Requires maintenance - laptops require regular system updates including anti-virus software
