Study Programmes

Our Study Programmes are designed in conjunction with employers to give you the real-world work experience your chosen industry is looking for, so whether you'd like to progress to University, onto an Apprenticeship or straight into the work place, Highbury College will give you skills you need to succeed.

If you're making the move from school to college it's a big step and we're here to support you all the way! 

View our range of full-time Study Programmes below.


An apprenticeship is a real job with training which allows you to earn while you learn, whilst gaining a nationally recognised qualification.

If you're interested in becoming an Apprentice, take a look at our current vacancies and apply online.


If you can't find what you're looking for, don't worry you can register with Highbury Employment Services, who will let you know as soon as a suitable apprenticeship becomes available.

Alternatively, you can start a full-time Study Programme in your chosen sector and transfer onto an Apprenticeship later in the academic year.


What our students say about engineering at Highbury

"I started at Highbury on a Level 1 course nearly 4 years ago. Highbury has supported me all the way through and helped me find the apprenticeship I am doing now. I love working day-in, day-out with cars and I am getting so much more practical experience – it’s great."

What our students say about engineering at Highbury

"We do a real range of practical things in engineering including how to weld, build circuit boards and design things using AutoCAD. I absolutely love all my lecturers, before I started I wasn’t sure what College would be like, but once I started everyone made me feel so welcome!"
