Mike Hopkins - Principal - South & City College BirminghamWelcome to South and City College Birmingham.

Making the decision about what to do after school, whether to go to college and which course to do is a difficult one. There are lots of things to consider. Where has the best course for what you want to do? Who has the best success rates? Are the facilities good enough? And most importantly, what will make you stand out from the rest of the crowd when it comes to applying for jobs or getting in to a university.

At South and City College Birmingham, we make solving those problems and giving you what you need to achieve your goals, our goal.

We have excellent success rates for students above many of the other colleges and the vast majority of our students successfully achieve their qualifications. As a result of this and the excellent teaching and support at the college, our students tell us that they are happy and feel supported during their time with us.

We have hundreds of hands-on courses in a wide range of subjects, and not only do our students get to learn in excellent facilities with industry standard equipment, but we are also investing millions in our buildings to ensure we meet the high standard that you should expect.

But what makes us really stand out from the crowd is how we will help you stand out no matter who you are. We work non-stop to give all our students additional opportunities to get ahead. Whether that is from our work and links with local employers for work experience placements, internships and apprenticeships to creating opportunities for hands-on work within the college. We have construction students who have renovated parts of our campuses, media students create videos for promotional use and our childcare students work in our on-site nursery. These and very many other similar opportunities provide springboards for our students to get jobs, or excellent additions for their CV's and university application.

If you come to the college you will have plenty of opportunity to meet and talk to me also as I hold regular informal meetings with students to talk about the things you need to help you at college

I hope you'll find our website useful in making your decision, and I hope to see you soon at South and City College.
