About Sandwell College

The majority of our full-time students are aged 16-18, studying courses designed to give them skills for the modern workplace (such as Automotive Engineering, Beauty Therapy and Web Design).  Many of our vocational courses for school leavers have 100% pass rates, while a very high proportion of our A Level students get straight into university.

We also welcome thousands of adult learners on to an extremely wide variety of full time, part time and short courses. These range from Entry Level tasters to Foundation Degrees, Level 5 vocational programmes and Continuing Professional Development courses.

Campus information

Our state-of-the-art Central Campus includes a specialist automotive centre, beauty and hairdressing salons, computer suites, construction workshops, engineering and science laboratories, fashion and photography studios, a sports hall and a 170-seater theatre – among many other facilities. Trainee dental nurses practise in a simulated surgery, while Travel and Tourism students train in a real aircraft fuselage.

Our iconic, £77 million Central Campus towers over the centre of West Bromwich and attracts students from across the region, with young people on our more specialist programmes coming from far afield. Just the other side of town, Central Sixth, our new and heavily subscribed A Level Centre, is making an equally impressive impact.


Student Union

The Students Union is an organisation run by students for students. It offers support and advice, provides entertainment, organises activities, charity events and a wide variety of trips in the UK and abroad. All students at Central Campus Sandwell College are automatically members of the Students Union.

Members can obtain an NUS Extra card which entitles you to discounts at many shops and online outlets. We have two full-time, and one part-time Student Liaison Officers at the College, who help in the smooth running of the Union and the organisation of events.

Student Liaison

The College employs Student Liaison Officers and a Sports Coordinator who help to organise our enrichment activities and sporting events in partnership with the Students Union. These include:
