Degree Level Programmes at Guildford College

Students Throwing

Are you looking for a Degree Level Programme that will give you practical skills for your career at a price you can afford? At Guildford College we focus on giving you industry skills and experience, resulting in increased prospects for employability.

Why Choose Guildford College?

1. Very Competitive Fees!

Our tuition fees are very competitive, so you could save up to £3,000 in comparison to what you might pay at a university.

2. Financial Support

At Guildford College we believe no one should be deterred from taking a Degree Level Programme because of the cost. Don't forget that if you're studying your first undergraduate degree you won't have to pay your tuition fees up front - you can get a loan from the government until you're earning £25,000 a year and can cope with manageable monthly payments. In addition, you may also be eligible for other grants, loans and bursaries from the government or the College. See our Financial Help page for more information.

3. University Accredited

Our Degrees and Foundation Degrees are validated by leading university Greenwich - assuring you of the highest level of academic quality and standards.

4. Employer-Endorsed

We work closely with employers to ensure our programmes are delivering the skills and knowledge they need in the workplace and that you need for your chosen career.

5. High Success Rates

Our success rates are high year on year, with many students gaining merit or distinction at Foundation Degree and first or upper second class degrees at honours. Many of our students are in work or have already started work during their programme.

6. Quality Teaching
