About Wakefield College


  • Each of the college’s two campuses are home to specialised facilities and resources, with their Wakefield City campus offering provisions for mainly A -Level and Sixth Form students, while the Castleford site caters to the needs of vocational learners.
  • One of the main advantages of studying Higher Education at Wakefield College is that the University Centre offers a smaller and more intimate class experience than universities. Students report their experiences of finding it easy to consult their tutors, and getting the support they need to refine their work.
  • The chance to choose from a multitude of academic and vocational course options, which could be A -Levels and Higher Education courses, or work -focused T -Levels and Apprenticeships.


  • This college does not provide their own student residence building, and due to being located in Wakefield city centre, paying rent for a flat nearby comes at a price. Fortunately, public transport in the area is well -connected and should make the daily commute easier for the majority of students.
