14-16 Links Programme
If you are interested in studying a course at the College through the Links Programme, you will need to speak to your school Links Coordinator (Options Advisor or Head of Year) at your school. Your tutor should be able to further advise you on this.
We will then liaise with your school and if there is a course that could be suitable for you, we will invite you in for a taster day. You will have the opportunity to look around the College and try out a couple of subjects. If you find a suitable course, and your school and teachers are happy for you to attend then you will be invited for an interview. Places on the Links Programme are limited.
For further information on the Links Programme, please contact Laura Harvey on 023 8091 1040 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Higher Education and Higher Level Courses
Eastleigh College offers a number of Higher Level study opportunities on its own campus. Higher Education can boost your future earnings and chances of getting the career you want, while you immerse yourself in subjects that interest you. It's about furthering your prospects, learning new things, being in charge of your choices and getting to where you want to be - whatever stage you are at and whatever age you are.
With the rising cost of Higher Education at University, it makes sense to consider a better value alternative. Eastleigh College offers a number of full and part-time qualifications at Levels 4, 5, 6 and 7, as well as traditional University partnered Higher Education. We have a committed, passionate and dedicated staff team, who are there to support your studies and help you reach your full potential. Our courses are validated by our respected partner universities: University of Portsmouth and Bucks New University.
Due to the varied delivery of Higher Education courses, the process of applying will differ slightly by course. In all instances, please visit the course page on this website and click the 'Apply Now' link. From there, you will either be redirected to the relevant University application form, or to the Colleges' own online application form.
