Competition for places at the UK’s best universities is high, therefore Portsmouth College offer the following programmes to help your application stand out from the rest.
E6 Personal Development Programme: Life Curriculum
A unique programme to enhance professional skills and experience and improve every students chance of securing employment opportunities and higher education places. E6 Personal Development Programme choices that are made will be added into the weekly timetable to run alongside the regular academic studies.
Portsmouth Scholars: In Collaboration with the University of Portsmouth
The ‘Portsmouth Scholars’ partnership between the University of Portsmouth and Portsmouth College, has been designed to support students transition from college to higher education, whilst also improving their study skills.
University of Portsmouth students can offer guidance to our college students who, in turn, will share their knowledge with secondary school pupils in a chain mentoring scheme. This is a fantastic way to learn from those who have recently studied A levels, as well as gain first hand knowledge from a student mentor about University life and study.
