Looking for a new challenge, training at work or seeking higher qualifications for better job prospects? Then Bicton College can help open the door to an exciting career.
The land-based sector in which the college operates combines primary food production, animal health and welfare, equine, horticulture and floristry, also extending to environmental conservation and sport and leisure. Studying locally for a foundation degree in these areas of growing importance will reduce your costs, increase vocational knowledge and skills and improve business performance, kick starting your career.
Higher Education Coordinator Catherine Gough said, ‘Our Foundation Degrees are designed to equip you with the skills and knowledge that businesses are looking for. They can lead straight to a job, or offer you a route into higher education – which ever path you chose to take, gaining a Foundation Degree from Bicton College can lead to better career opportunities; higher salaries and increased job or personal satisfaction. She added, ‘With rising tuition fees, travel and accommodation costs, studying near to home has to be the sensible option. Bicton has always kept its fees competitive, recognising the diversity and needs of local students wishing to study and progress on to work in agriculture, horticulture, the environment and related disciplines.’
Bicton’s Foundation Degree courses can be studied full-time, (3 days per week over two years) or part-time, (1.5 days per week over three years), so combining work and study is an option, as bills will still get paid.
With additional benefits of being only 20 minutes from Exeter, set in fantastic rural surroundings, the college offers students high quality teaching, real life working environments, excellent learning resources and facilities, free parking and a children’s’ day nursery.
The college is holding a Higher Education Advice Day on Monday 11th July from 5.30 to 7pm with opportunities to speak with tutors and find out more about courses on offer. To book a place call the Customer Services team on 01395 562400.
