Introduction to Moulton College

Get course info Visit website


Moulton College based in Northamptonshire has an unrivalled reputation for excellence in training for the Land Based, Construction and Furniture industries offering Further and Higher Education courses and part-time courses in ‘world-class’ facilities.

The College offers a unique opportunity to study in a 650 hectare, beautiful, rural environment, to complete an academic qualification and, whilst doing so, obtain the essential practical experience that places our students at the ‘head of the queue’ when seeking employment.

Whatever your prior achievement, we offer a course that will allow you to study at a level that matches your individual needs. In each subject area, structured progression routes will then allow you to progress to honours degree level and beyond, or to step off the ladder at any point and move straight into employment.

The unique aspect of Moulton’s courses is the high emphasis placed upon work experience, both with local employers and in the College’s own commercial enterprises. Great significance is also placed upon the development of key skills, including literacy and numeracy, together with additional qualifications, many of which are legislative and are regarded as ‘licences to practice’ for some occupations.

We are aware that many students leave College or University with substantial debt, and consequently we structure our courses to allow students to take part- time employment whilst studying. We also provide access to a wide range of bursaries and other awards. An extensive subsidised transport network from most parts of Northamptonshire and neighbouring counties, coupled with modern en-suite residential accommodation, makes our courses accessible on either a residential or daily basis.

The success achieved by our students continues to be impressive, and we hope that you will want to share in that success by continuing your education at Moulton College.
