Welcome, I am delighted that you are thinking about joining us at Sussex Downs College.
Adult learners come to Sussex Downs for many reasons; to learn new skills, to refresh and upgrade existing skills, to take a different pathway in life, or to enjoy the social side of learning. Part time learning takes place not just at our three campuses but throughout our communities and in the work place, which means that even at work, you can continue to study and learn. If you wish to change career or job, we have a close relationship with local Job Centres and can keep you informed of vacancies, associated skills alongside refreshing those vital job search and interview techniques.
You will find some useful information on this website that will point you towards the right programme; there is a lot to choose from! We have a wide range of subjects and courses– including opportunities for you to ‘earn while you learn’ as an adult apprentice. Our academic studies provide real stretch and challenge, and prepare our students, whatever their age, for the best universities in the country. Our vocational courses have an enviable record of helping people to find good jobs and to continue their studies at higher levels. We are in the top 10% of colleges nationally for qualification success rates and have a great track record of helping our students to achieve at the very highest levels. Many of our former students keep in touch and tell us about how they have progressed in their chosen careers or life choices; their stories are amazing! With Sussex Downs College, you can create your own success story.
