Adult education courses
After the age of 18 you can apply for further or higher education. You will be offered a place if you meet the entry requirements, but you will usually have to pay fees. In Herefordshire, adult education courses are run at:
- Herefordshire Sixth Form College
- Herefordshire & Ludlow College
- The Royal National College for the Blind
There is also a University at Worcester which is about 25 miles from Hereford City.
How to apply
Applications for places at these colleges should be made directly to the college concerned.
Regulations on fees are complex. For many newly arrived young people, the requirement to pay course fees will depend on their immigration status, whether study is part-time or full-time, and whether the young person is receiving benefits or financial support from the government.
Herefordshire College of Art & Design
Herefordshire College of Art & Design is the only specialist Art, Design and Performing Arts College in the West Midlands. We are one of the few colleges left in the UK where students as young as 16 can study in the same environment as our undergraduates or alongside practising artists and designers.
As a specialist College we can offer highly individual attention. Our courses have relatively small numbers of students which means that we get to know them well, and they quickly feel at home in this supportive and creative environment.
The College seeks to recruit from as wide a range of students as possible. Applicants from students without entry requirements will be considered based on their previous experience or equivalent qualifications, together with a strong commitment towards art, design or performing arts. The College is committed to the promotion of equal opportunities. A copy of the College’s Equal Opportunities policy is available on request.
