Located on the outskirts of historic Salisbury, the College’s Salisbury campus offers a wide range of vocational and creative courses from entry level through to degrees validated by some of the UK’s top universities.
The campus has recently undergone a £14million redevelopment to refresh a large proportion of its teaching facilities.
The development at our Salisbury campus was made possible by over £24m of investment into our Salisbury and Lackham campuses, secured by the Swindon & Wiltshire Local Enterprise Partnership (SWLEP). More than £14million has been spent on refurbishing a new building and transforming the whole campus. New facilities include the refectory, science labs, plumbing and electrical workshops, photography and film studios, mac suite, dark room, video editing suites, engineering labs, and a lecture theatre.
As a College, we are proud of our partnerships with some of the UK’s top universities. Our Science, Photography and Film Degrees are validated by Bournemouth University. And with an extensive range of industry-standard facilities at our Salisbury campus, our degrees give our students the competitive edge to thrive and succeed in their chosen sector. Our photography students have access to the latest digital imaging software, fully equipped studios, large and medium format cameras and more. Film production and cinematography students have access to a range of the latest professional broadcast equipment including digital cameras, sound and lighting equipment and non-linear edit suites.
