West Suffolk College
West Suffolk College is a rural further education college with its main campus located in Out Risbygate and Construction and Building Services at The Milburn Centre, Anglian Lane, both within Bury St Edmunds. In addition, we serve our rural community through Local Learning Centres in Haverhill, Ipswich, Mildenhall, Stowmarket and Sudbury. The Haverhill, Mildenhall, Stowmarket and Sudbury centres are also designated Leap centres. We use over a hundred different venues around the county to deliver our programmes.
In 2013/14 the College had over 13,798 students including 14-16 students, 16-18 students, apprentices, workplace learners and adult students.
There were 678 Higher Education students.
In addition to Full-time, Part-time and Adult Education, we have a large contract for Apprenticeships and training for businesses. In support of
these programmes we work with more than 1700 employers and in 2012/13 delivered a substantial volume of full cost courses to employers.
We are a member of University Campus Suffolk and provide full and part-time degree courses for around 727 students. Our annual graduation is
held in the Cathedral, and is a very important day for our students and the town alike.
