Bury College

Bury College is a further education college which offers a wide range of learning opportunities for all. We are extremely proud to be recognised as an institution which responds to the needs and requirements of local and Greater Manchester learners and stakeholders.

Dedicated to providing the communities we serve with a broad choice of learning options, Bury College offers a range of A Level courses, vocational programmes and apprenticeships. Higher level courses are also available to study at Bury College University Centre, as well as courses and training programmes for adults.

In addition to the £48 million which has already been invested into the Bury College campus in recent years, a further £7 million was spent on new campus-wide developments in 2018. Students benefited from a new A Level Centre, Digital Media Centre, Business Suite and Travel and Tourism Hub. In 2020, a new building focussing on areas vital to the needs of Bury and Greater Manchester; health, life sciences, science, technology, computing and mathematics will also open.

Bury College is proud to consistently achieve excellent results. We are delighted to be in the top 10% of further education colleges in the country for 16-18 year old achievement progression in English and mathematics, as reported by the Department for Education Performance Table in January 2019.

The college offers students a supportive learning environment and one-to-one encouragement from experienced tutors to ensure that learners succeed in their studies. Above everything, Bury College is here to serve the community through education and training and aspires to provide the best for every student.
