City of Bristol

City of Bristol College has taken students to the University of Bristol and the University of the West of England to view the facilities related to medicine, veterinary, midwifery and the Allied Health Professions. They have been delivering their L3 Animal Management Extended Diploma for a Taster Days and focussing on UCAS, supporting student applications and interviews.

City of Bristol College has been delivering their L3 Animal Management Extended Diploma for a Taster Days. They were able to see Higher Education progression paths and excellent facilities related to various fields within Animal Care. They took a tour of the facilities, did a guided dissection activity, along with a masterclass in how to bandage animals. Many students from that cohort were undecided about whether or not to progress to Higher Education, so it was important to show them where they could be ahead of the UCAS deadline.

On 29th the September City of Bristol College took a group of L3 Year 2 students to the University of Bristol to view the facilities related to medicine and veterinary, giving them the opportunity ahead of the early UCAS deadline. They also took a large group of L3 Year 2 students to UWE on 12th October to view the Glenside campus and the facilities related to nursing, midwifery and the Allied Health Professions.

City of Bristol College has also collaborated with SGS, taking a group of L3 Theatrical and Media Make-Up students for a Tour and Taster Session to their newly revamped Higher Education centre on 20th October, showing students a local progression option. They will be doing the same with our Performing Arts L3 cohorts on 26h November.

City of Bristol College has supported mature learner Access students with their university applications, and are working with their English and Maths teams to discuss progression pathways for those returning to education after a long break.

Aside from that, City of Bristol College has been focussing on UCAS. Having supported L3 BTEC students to apply for medicine courses, they have a student with an interview lined up for an ultra-competitive foundation degree in medicine. They also have students with interviews secured for midwifery and nursing, all of whom have been supported through the Future Quest programme.

SGS College
