BE PART OF SOMETHING BIG

             THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A BETTER TIME TO STUDY AT HIGHBURY COLLEGE.
In spring 2021, Highbury College and Portsmouth College announced a plan to join forces and realise the “One City, One College”
            vision, expanding the range of courses and facilities available to students across Portsmouth and beyond.

                                       WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOU
                               The new organisation, called the City of Portsmouth College, will:

                                    expand the range of courses and apprenticeships available
                                    provide greater flexibility for students and employers
                                    share world-class facilities across four specialised campuses.

                    By joining us this September you’ll not only benefit from all the new organisation has to
                             offer but also help shape a dynamic city-wide college set for the future.

                                          WANT TO KNOW MORE?
