Principal's Welcome

Principal Shelagh Legrave

I’d like to wish you a very warm welcome to Chichester College. I’m really pleased that you’re thinking of coming here to study and want to find out more about the services we offer. We have such a wide range of courses that I’m sure you will find the right subject and level for you. Whether you want to gain a qualification to go to university or to get the job of your dreams, we can help you achieve your goals. Our vision is to change lives through learning. Read our latest Annual Report (2013) for a comprehensive overview of our achievements and aspirations.

Chichester College is a great place to learn. We currently have 15,000 full and part-time students enrolled here. You can see what attracted them to Chichester College by coming to our next Open Evening at Chichester Campus or Brinsbury Campus.

Whether you are just leaving school, continuing to a higher level, returning to education or want to learn purely for fun, we have people who can talk to you about your needs and aspirations, and guide you through our excellent facilities. This is your opportunity to look around one of the most popular colleges in the country, talk to the tutors and see why our students chose to come to Chichester.

If you are a parent or guardian wanting to help your son or daughter or ward make an informed choice, we do our best to provide you with all the help you need - visit our Information for Parents page.

Our students tell me that what they like about Chichester College is that it’s a really friendly place, where you are free to be yourself, and you feel that the moment you walk through the door. They say they feel stretched and challenged but also really appreciate the additional support available.

Both our campuses are easy to get to, so you can be green and leave the car at home. The Chichester Campus is less than 5 minutes walk from the train and bus stations and only 5 minutes from the city centre. At the Brinsbury Campus there’s a bus route that brings you to the door!

Facilities Open to the Public

Chichester College also has lots to offer the public: professional restaurants; a state-of-the-art Sports Centre; great value hair and beauty salons; high quality childcare and much more - the links on the left of this page will take you to them all.

I hope you find what you need on the website to help you decide which course to study. If you have any questions, get in touch with our Admissions team by ringing them on 01243 786321, email or pop in to the Student Centre at either campus and speak to an adviser.

I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to the college.
