Our short courses in humanities and social studies build introductory level skills in areas such as psychology, criminology and sociology. We can then support you to progress onto our Pre-Access and Access to Higher Education offer.
I worked in various roles for 11 years before training to become a tutor. It was the best thing I have ever done. I get to teach young people and adults and can provide real life scenarios to help them to understand the subject.
Northern College for adults changed my life. I did short courses and an Access to Higher Education course. I am now a midwife with a first class degree.
I would recommend Northern College to anyone looking to develop a long term academic career in a safe and healthy environment with loads of inspiration and caring staff to work with.
