COLLEGE NOTICE (Updated 12/04/21)

Resumption of delivery on College campuses continues to be limited to areas where skills training and assessment needs to take place on site. Unlike schools, Colleges of Further Education have not resumed delivery in full. The College is operating in line with the NI Executive’s Roadmap to Recovery and must wait on the Executive’s decision to trigger the next stage on the roadmap before resuming delivery.

The NI Executive is scheduled to review this later this week and should the decision be taken to trigger Stage 2 of the Roadmap to Recovery, the College will inform students accordingly. Until this takes place, students should continue to follow the direction provided by their course tutors and continue to monitor all communications via email, website and social media.


Learning Resource Centres are open for students unable to access online lessons from home. Student services and limited canteen facilities are also available. Student queries should be directed to Course Co-ordinators. General queries should be emailed to

Benefits of Studying HE at SRC

1. Lower fees than universities

At SRC the fees will be a lot lower in comparison to universities. There are a number of loans and grants available to assist students in paying fees, the Campus Services team can advise on these. Money shouldn’t be a barrier to furthering your education.

2. Strong partnerships with prestigious universities

SRC has strong links with Ulster University, Queen's University Belfast and Liverpool John Moores University. Working alongside prestigious universities brings the expertise and accreditation of a university closer to home. Whether you study at the university itself or at SRC, the quality and content of the course will be the same.

3. Small class sizes and high quality teaching

At SRC the class sizes are small and this means that students will receive a higher amount of academic and personal support from tutors. These tutors have extensive teaching and industry experience which ensures students are receiving the highest quality possible learning experience.

4. Supportive environment

All students at the College are provided with a high level of support. The Learning Support and Campus Services teams are available for all our students to access if they need additional support. We want our students to achieve their goals. Therefore if one to one support in the classroom, extra exam time or sessions in our study skills workshop are needed, we have measures to put these in place to help you.

5. Modern state-of-the-art facilities

Students at SRC have the benefit of the significant and on-going investment in facilities so they can make the most of their time at the College. With upcoming new state of the art facilities at our Armagh, Craigavon and Banbridge campuses, the facilities will improve further.

6. Over 45 courses on offer

Many of the HE courses on offer have different options available such as part time or full time, allowing you the option to study and work at the same time. We offer HNCs/HNDs, Foundation Degrees, Higher Level Apprenticeships and a range of professional qualifications in partnership with awarding bodies and universities.

7. Live at home and study

Staying at home to study can be less expensive and studying at SRC can facilitate you remaining at home, keeping your current part-time job or finding a job to help you fund your course. This may, in turn, help to reduce your debt and provide you with useful work experience.

8. International Travel

SRC organises numerous local and international study visits and residential trips to help gain valuable life-skills and international experience to help you develop personally, professionally and academically and to succeed in today's world. Erasmus+ has enabled HE staff and students to develop new skills and share new ideas and explore best practices to take back to the classroom.
