Adult Learners

Our College has a rich and diverse student population and our vision is to provide a safe and inspiring learning environment for all learners of any age.

At Canterbury College, we encourage lifelong learning and can help you progress in your career or take a new direction. Adult learners studying full-time courses receive the same technical and vocational learning opportunities as our young people.

Short and part-time courses

For those over 19, we offer a range of short and part-time courses to help you gain new skills outside of normal College hours. Our courses focus on professional development and learning new skills.

Higher Education

Our higher education courses are equivalent to years 1, 2 and 3 of a degree. This means you can choose to top up to a degree or leave with a Level 4 qualification that is recognised in its own right.
