History of the College

Southern Regional College is the largest Further and Higher Education College outside of Belfast in Northern Ireland with a total of six campuses across the counties of Armagh and Down.

Covering two district councils, the College offers first class education and an exciting learning environment for further and higher education.

At further education level, the College offers courses from BTEC Level 1-3 Certificates and Diplomas, through to NVQ's and ‘A’ levels. Many of these are aimed at our full time market although many of these courses are available on a part time basis also. We also offer Apprenticeship Training programmes at the College, where students can learn valuable trades to take into the workplace.

At Southern Regional College we pride ourselves on being able to offer students a diverse range of Higher Education learning experiences. Our portfolio of higher level professional and technical courses is broad ranging and we ensure that all our programmes, be they degrees, diplomas, certificates or professional qualifications, are of a quality surpassing that offered at university.

Within the six Schools of the College we are confident that we can offer students qualifications which offer clear progression pathways and which are relevant for the worlds of work. We currently cater for approximately 34,000 students each year and have in excess of 900 members of staff.

We are an award winning College, a centre of Excellence for teaching and learning and can offer students an intellectually and socially stimulating environment. We hope we can welcome you to the Southern Regional College in the not too distant future.
