Newcastle College's origins go back over 120 years to 1894 when Rutherford Memorial College was established at Rye Hill. Over the years the college has grown and expanded to nine other satellite sites across Newcastle, Gateshead and North Tyneside.
We offer over 100 full-time vocational courses, for those aged 16 -18, who are looking for a more practical and career-focused way of learning that will enable them to progress into higher education or into employment. For adult learners we have over 300 part-time, evening, daytime, and weekend courses which range from those designed to help you get back into work, retrain for a new career, or if you wish to start a new hobby.
The Learning Support Service at Newcastle College provides support, advice and guidance for students with a wide range of learning needs.
We are here to help students across the college who have a range of additional support needs. We support students in a number of ways and are committed to providing inclusive education in a safe and positive environment.
Newcastle College shares strong links with student accommodation providers and private letting agencies around the city. We provide students with support in sourcing the best accommodation options whether it be a private rented apartment, shared student accommodation or home stay accommodation.
Situated at the heart of the Rye Hill Campus, the main library has over 70,000 resources covering subject areas from administration to sport. This branch also houses our collection of CDs, videos and DVDs.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS, StudyPortals offers you the chance to receive up to £10000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
