The details of support available can change, so before you apply it's best to speak to the named contact to check exactly what they offer.
Yeovil College and Yeovil College University Centre are there to support you.
As holders of the Buttle UK Quality Mark, we have specialists to support your transition into higher education, and out the other side.
We aim to provide you with the confidence to succeed, to feel inspired and empowered. Through our student union, student liaison officer and the rest of the team, you are able to access specialist support alongside that provided by your programme tutors – in smaller, caring and student-centred environments.
