There is a place for every adult at Northern College, and we support our students every step of the way. We provide a second chance to adults who want to start a new chapter and transform their lives through education.

  •  “Northern College did and still is changing my life; it changes people too. It opens your mind to your dreams, and makes them a reality.” (former student) 
  •  “My experience at Northern College residential college for adults was life changing. I came from working class family struggling in Liverpool with zero qualifications, but that all changed. I’m a deputy manager now.” (former student) 

Student achievement rates are always outstanding, and remain forecast to align with or exceed the national average. The combination of great teaching, a residential environment and supportive staff gives way to an experience which not only shapes and changes lives but creates individuals who feel empowered, confident and most importantly; able.  This academic year, and many before, has seen many students from all backgrounds really embrace a different way of experiencing education.

Student achievements are outstanding, regardless of entry level, and many adults describe a period of short intensive study here as life changing.
