What can I study at Canterbury College?

If you are in school, one of our Further Education courses will prepare you for university. If you've finished school, you could do one of our Higher Education (university-level) courses. If you've finished school but are not quite ready for Higher Education (university-level) study, or if you have been out of education for some time, our International Foundation Programme can help you get there.
