Higher Education - The Gateway

The Gateway – An exclusive area at the Peterlee Campus for all our higher education students.

The Gateway is a ‘one-stop shop’ facility that enables higher education students to access a wide range of university services and academic support, all in one place.

The facility houses a plasma screen, computers and ‘crash-out’ seating, as well as desks and meeting area to aid study. Designed specifically with students in mind, The Gateway is an innovation in student support, giving higher education students a first point of contact within the College.

Principal Ian Prescott, at the opening ceremony in January 2009, said, “Our partnership with The University of Sunderland is very valuable and this investment is testament to our commitment to HE. For our higher education students it provides a dedicated area for study and where they can gain information, advice and guidance - but it is also an area where their status as HE students is recognised.

Student also benefit from having a University of Sunderland member of staff on site several days a week, to help them with enquiries regarding Higher Education at the College and progression on to the University.
