We encourage our students to engage with contemporary business practice and we arrange study visits that place their studies in 'live' situations.

Business Studies HE

“I chose Higher Education at Canterbury College because I wanted to study nearer to home and the class sizes and support offered appealed to me. Having taken a break after my A-levels it was a good choice for me as there was a wide range of ages on my course and tutors were supportive of students returning to education”
