City of Bristol College

City of Bristol College is one of the South West’s largest further and higher education colleges. We have a range of academic and vocational courses available. We offer full and part-time study opportunities from entry to degree level.

The college has 7 sites across Bristol. All of our Access Pathways are delivered at the Ashley Down site, with occasional classes at our College Green site.

Our Access students are taught by well qualified, experienced, subject specialists and are assigned a personal tutor who supports them throughout the programme. Additionally, we are lucky to have a therapy dog, Clemmy, who works exclusively within the Access department. Our Access students progress to a very broad range of universities including Russell group universities
