Myerscough specialises in education and training for the land-based and sports industries. We teach more than 20 different subjects, many of which might already be hobbies and activities you enjoy doing in your spare time! For example, you can study motorsports, golf, football, horticulture and landscaping, animal care and equine studies. Plus, there’s a whole range of other subjects available that will give you the hands on, practical skills that you need to secure the job of your dreams.
Another good reason for studying at Myerscough is the opportunity to work and study abroad. We have close links with many overseas colleges and three American universities, allowing a number of our students to undertake study abroad. What’s more, several of our courses provide the opportunity to work abroad on placements - so if you like travel, here’s a great place to start your journey!
Because many of the courses at Myerscough are about getting you ready for the world of work, a lot of your time will be spent acquiring practical skills – either outside in the open air, in purpose-built workshops or in environments which reflect the workplace. This means your learning experience is made more enjoyable, enriching and fun! We also have exceptional learning facilities, including an extensive library and fully resourced computer centre for all your study and IT needs.
One of the great things about Myerscough is that, if you’re looking to progress to a degree course at the end of your studies, we offer a choice of Foundation Degrees and Honours Degrees at our Preston campus. Higher Education opportunities exist in each of our subject areas and don’t forget that by studying for a Level 3 Diploma or Extended Diploma qualification it provides the opportunity to progress to a degree course either here at Myerscough or many other colleges and universities.
