Our College is fortunate to be located in Wiltshire at the heart of Southern England.
The county of Wiltshire is a beautiful place to visit and is renowned as a major international tourist destination. Sites such as Salisbury with its magnificent cathedral, Stonehenge, Avebury and the nearby city of Bath draw visitors from all over the world in great numbers and we welcome the rich diversity that this brings. From here you will also be able to explore Bristol, Cheltenham, Oxford and London, all of which are easily accessible by train. Should you feel more adventurous you can also visit the Coast (never far away in England!) or even nearby Wales, another beautiful country within the United Kingdom and a short train journey from here.
We are able to offer our International Students a surprising range of courses, many of which are leaders in their discipline. Some of these courses are at foundation and degree level, and we work closely with our established University partners to ensure tha thte standard of achievement remains high. We always aim to offer an excellent education experience and pride ourselves on our very high success rate in this area (96%). The final grade or degree classification profile for international students is also extremely high. The commitment of our staff and a close working relationship with our University partners is the key to your success.
In adduition, all of our courses are subject to a rigorous approval process to ensure that they are at least equal to the provision of other higher education institutions and meet the standards of our validating bodies.
Wiltshire College is one of the largest in the UK with four main campuses, each affording diverse and exciting opportunities. Our campuses are all in Wiltshire and each has a unique flavour and character of its own. Most of our international students are based in Salisbury, which is a city well known for its warm welcome. Other international students choosing to study certain specific courses such as motorsport engineering or land-based courses will be based at the historic Lackham House, an estate set in 800 acres of picturesque countryside that includes farms and extensive sports facilities. You may also find that you have a surprising range of choices to make, as in addition to the expected facilities, several of the campuses offer award-winning Hair and Beauty Salons and restaurants staffed by students studying these disciplines.
We offer our international students a full accommodation service which includes family homestay and assistance with finding rented housing, as well as rooms in our purpose-built halls of residence.
We have enjoyed working with international students for many years and have a significant number studying with us at any one time. Our support teams are used to helping our overseas students and offer pre-arrival assistance, orientation programmes and social activities as well as general support and welfare services. They will help you with any enquiry you may wish to make and guide you through the application procedure. Our International Office is responsible for the welfare of our international students and provides comprehensive advice and support on both practical and personal issues.
