Learning Resource Centres

Our Learning Resources Centres (LRCs) are committed to supporting all students at College on their course. Further information about our LRCs can be found here.

Lost Property

Reception at each campus looks after any lost property handed in.

We cannot take responsibility for any equipment, materials or property that you may leave at any College centre. The College carries no insurance for loss of property. You would be wise, therefore, to take out your own insurance.

Mobile Phones

To avoid annoyance, please silence mobile phones in classrooms, workshops, the LRCs, drop-in computer centres and Reception areas.

Hand-held mobile phones must not be used whilst driving on campuses and on the road.

Multi Cultural Rooms

These are designed as quiet rooms for prayer, contemplation and reflection.

Students and staff of all faiths and beliefs are welcome to use them.

Keys are available from Reception and/or Student Liaison Offices.

Part-Time Work

For some full-time students this is essential, and for many it is good experience, particularly if the work is course-related. For others the part time job takes over, becomes a serious distraction from the course, and may jeopardise a studentís chance of success.

Generally the College supports this aspect of self help, but does advise full-time students to limit their part time work to less than 16 hours a week.

Occasionally there are part-time work opportunities in the College, as Student Ambassadors, Student Wardens and Learning Mentors, to name a few. If you are interested, keep an eye on the vacancies listed on our vacancies pages.
