At Yeovil College University Centre, we are proud to deliver a range of practical and academic qualifications in the heart of Yeovil to support you with the next steps in your career journey. Our University Centre offers a real alternative to traditional university, where you can study university-level qualifications within a personalised environment. All qualifications have been designed with local employers and industry requirements in mind, flexibly delivered for real people with busy time-constrained lives.
The Yeovil College University Centre is constantly evolving and expanding its provision, introducing new qualifications year on year. We offer a range of qualification types from a Higher National Certificate (HNC) at Level 4 right through to a full Bachelor’s Degree at Level 6, many of which can be studied either full or part-time to allow students to balance other life commitments alongside their studies. Whether progressing straight from a Level 3 course, or looking to return to education after some time away from the classroom, we are excited to welcome new learners to be part of our supportive and diverse student community.

There are lots of factors to consider when picking a university-level course. It’s important to first look at what type of qualification is right for you, for example do you want to commit to a full degree qualification or start out with a Higher National Certificate. If you’ve got a certain career in mind, make sure you’re choosing a course that is relevant to that.
All of our courses have a selection of entry requirements which can be found on our website. Entry requirements are just one part of the process, we also interview applicants to make sure we’re getting the full picture of someone’s suitability for the course. If you’re over the age of 21, we take into account relevant work experience as well as your qualifications.
Student Finance provide both tuition fee loans (for cost of your course) and maintenance loans (for living costs), to help with the cost of university-level study. These are not loans in the traditional sense of the word, and you will only need to start paying them back once you’re earning over a certain amount.
If you’re applying for a full-time course, you need to apply using a website called UCAS. UCAS are the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service and they oversee applications for most full-time university-level courses in the country. If you’re applying for a part-time course then you won’t use UCAS, instead you need to complete one of our part time application forms.
After you have applied, our admissions team will consider your application. If you meet the minimum required entry qualifications for the course, then you will be invited to interview. From here there are three potential outcomes, you will either be given a Conditional Offer, an Unconditional Offer or your application will be rejected.
Over the past year, our campus has undergone massive development and is now unrecognisable. Yeovil College has invested a significant amount into its teaching and learning environments, spaces and workshops, specifically in areas such as Health and Social Care, Creative Industries and Engineering.
