It is my pleasure, on behalf of the governors and staff of South West College, to welcome you to South West College .

Deciding on the path for your educational journey is a big and important decision, whether it's after your GCSEs, after A Level or returning to study at a higher level, so I’m delighted that you’re considering joining us. Our college is full of inspiring examples of ambitious and talented people who chose us as part of their educational journey which I hope you find useful and encouraging as you consider your next steps.

There are many reasons why people choose to study at South West College. Our learners have told us that the support and encouragement they receive from our tutors and our relaxed and friendly atmosphere are among their top reasons for studying here.

We are very proud of our diverse range of programmes, which include everything from entry level to degree courses, offered across our state of the art campuses in Cookstown, Dungannon, Enniskillen and Omagh.

Designed in partnership with employers and delivered by tutors who have worked in industry, our courses aim to help you achieve the skills, knowledge and experience employers value.

All our College staff, tutors and Student Services are here to support you, providing advice and guidance in a caring environment to ensure you fulfil your potential. We want your time with us to be rewarding, we want you to have fun, build lasting friendships and gain the skills and qualifications needed for a rewarding career.

Our Students Union offers a range of social and sporting activities, clubs and societies to ensure that your time spent with us is fun and meaningful.

We are extremely proud of our learners and all their achievements and we’re delighted that our most recent Student Survey showed a very high satisfaction rate, and we’re even more proud of the fact that the vast majority of our learners progress to either employment or further studies after completing their courses with us.

We look forward to welcoming you to the South West College family in 2024!
