College Overview

Welcome from Jayne Dickinson, Principal and Chief Executive

Jayne-Dickinson-Photo-for-the-webWelcome to East Surrey College and our exciting range of courses and study programmes designed to give you the skills you need to have a career that really interests you, help you progress to university, into an apprenticeship or maybe just learn something new for enjoyment.

From the moment you walk into our spectacular building you can see that this is a college built for the future. We have first class facilities and first class teaching staff to help you get where you want to be. Here you will be treated as an individual and not just a face in a crowd. Your next step could shape the rest of your life and it’s our job to make sure you have the right skills and qualifications to get there.

If you plan to join us from school you will join a study programme that will include all the elements you need including work experience and – if you don’t have them at A* - C already - GCSEs in English and/or Maths to set you firmly on the career path of your choice. We’ll make sure you are thoroughly guided and supported along the way.

Of course college is not just about studying - you will be making new friends and hopefully taking advantage of all the sport and other activities available. You may be a budding entrepreneur in which case we have special events with input from large and small businesses to help you excel.
The College also offers a wide range of qualification courses suitable for adults who are looking to change careers or improve their prospects. The College is open several evenings in the week and there is a thriving Saturday programme that includes a range from the hundreds of leisure courses to choose from.

If you are looking to get a Higher Education qualification or degree, studying locally makes real financial sense and with excellent quality too. We offer a number of Higher qualifications, Foundation and Full Degrees accredited by University of Brighton, University of the Arts London (UAL), Canterbury Christ Church and Kingston University – right here on your doorstep. 

I am delighted you are considering East Surrey College. Do browse through our website for ideas but don’t forget our Open Events which provide an opportunity for you to take a good look around as well as meet with tutors and hear from students.

I hope to see you here soon!
