Farnborough College of Technology Overview Image

Farnborough College of Technology founded in 1957 is a friendly and exciting place to study, where we are committed to helping you achieve the skills and qualifications you need for your career and a successful future.

We offer high quality teaching within small groups and specialise in providing additional support to those who require it. The College also has a very close relationship with the University of Surrey, which accredits our degree programmes.

We have very strong links with industry and ensure that all our programmes provide the essential skills valued by employers. The flexibility of our learning means that students have the choice of studying vocational-based diplomas or degrees that set them on the path for their chosen career, or general academic qualifications for those who want to keep their options open. In many cases, students can study on a part-time basis as well.

We offer a full range of professional part-time programmes such as Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, Chartered Management Institute and the Chartered Institute of Marketing. These programmes provide progression from many degree and diploma courses.  The Information Centre holds full details of all the courses offered, call 01252 407040 or email us.
