Wiltshire College

Introduction

Wiltshire College is one of the largest public funded Further and Higher Education colleges in the UK. Each year thousands of students join us to further their education and achieve their goals.

The College was formed in recent years through the merger of Chippenham, Lackham, Trowbridge and Salisbury Colleges, however the history of the individual college campuses can be traced back as far as the early 1900s.

The College is spread across 4 main campuses and 5 smaller centres throughout the county of Wiltshire in the heart of Southern England. Most of our international students are based at the Salisbury Campus, just 7 miles from one of the most visited landmarks in the UK, Stonehenge.

We offer a broad range of courses for international students, providing a safe and welcoming environment that will ensure you learn and develop your English Language, academic and/or vocational skills.

We are a UK Visa and Immigration (UKVI) Highly Trusted Sponsor for TIER 4 Student Visa and can also issue student visitor visa documentation. The college also has a discrete multi-faith room for all students to use.

With over 3300 full-time students, 6000 part-time students and 800 University Level students Wiltshire College is an exciting place to study.
