As the new academic year approaches, South West College is excited to announce that the College Clearing process is still open, with limited spaces available across their Higher Education provision at campuses in Dungannon, Enniskillen, and Omagh.

College Clearing is designed to provide a second chance for students who may not have received their first-choice offers, those who have recently decided to pursue higher education, or whose circumstances may have changed.

Prospective students can explore the Colleges higher education courses and discover the perfect fit for their educational journey. Choose from courses in a variety of areas, including Engineering, Quantity Surveying, Business, Construction Engineering, Surveying and management, Transport and supply, Media, Art and Design, Law and Finance, Science, Sport and Exercise, and much more.

At South West College, we understand that choosing the right course can be a challenging decision. We are committed to supporting all applicants in finding the best fit for their aspirations. Our friendly and expert team is available to guide you through the application process. Whether you have questions, need advice, or require assistance at any stage, our admissions team is just a call or email away. Contact our admissions team at Tel: 028 8225 0109 or email for personalised support.

We offer flexible ways to study higher education courses, with different study types, work combinations, and part-time options to suit busy lifestyles. Our courses can be taken on a full-time, part-time or Higher Level Apprenticeship basis, allowing you to fit study around existing commitments such as family, caring responsibilities, part-time work, or child care.

South West College offers options such as Foundation Degrees and full Honours Degree top-ups, accredited by Pearson, The Open University, Queens University Belfast, and Ulster University. This means you may not have to travel far to study a higher education qualification. We work in partnership with local universities, enabling you to study a full degree locally while being awarded the qualification by a university.

Did you know if you hold a QQI level 7, HND, or Foundation Degree in business, sport, engineering, construction, computing, media, or transport you could top-up to a full Honours Degree?

A top-up degree is the final year (Level 6) of an undergraduate degree course and allows you to top up your existing qualification to a full BA, BSc, or BEng degree.
