Coronavirus update

Aligned with the government’s announcement for delaying the opening of colleges across England, Northern College students will all now study remotely from 5 January 2021 and begin to return to campus week commencing 18 January 2021 instead.

This includes all scheduled courses, including our shorter two-day provision, GCSE study and Access to Higher education programmes.

We are committed to supporting you to achieve and progress. This means we have a range of carefully planned methods in place to adapt and manage our teaching and learning, to ensure you can continue your studies.

Therefore, online learning will begin from 5 January 2021 and tutors will provide all details to students ahead of the course. We will then contact each of our students directly about their return to face-to-face learning on site, and when they are required to attend from 18 January 2021.

From 4 January 2021 during this time, Northern College will be preparing on-site testing for staff and students. More details will be made available on arrangements regarding testing on our campus in due course. Learn about our covid-secure campus here.

Can I still apply for a course during this time?

We remain committed to carrying on learning, and supporting you to achieve and progress. This means we are continuing to take applications and you can apply over the phone or online, and we will continue to adapt our learning with government guidelines as and when necessary. To apply:
