Social studies is a fascinating area to study and work within. If you are curious about people, behaviours and the world around you these courses are perfect.
Our short courses build introductory level skills in areas such as psychology, criminology, and sociology which you can explore from across the subjects. We can then support you to progress onto our Pre-Access and Access to Higher Education offer which will give you the qualifications and skills to apply for university.
I have been here two months now and I couldn't wish for a better place to study. I'm studying Health Science and it has many interesting modules. My tutors are amazing... Thank you to all the staff at Northern College. You couldn't do your job any better! Cannot wait to progress.
