South Eastern Regional College provides a range of courses for adults in the community. We work with many schools, community and voluntary organisations to deliver courses in informal community venues near to home. Courses can also be delivered at a College Campus at Bangor, Ballynahinch, Downpatrick, Holywood, Lisburn, Newcastle or Newtownards. Courses can be set up in response to requests from groups and can be facilitated, for the most part, at any time of the year.

Returning to studies in a local setting can assist individuals to:

  • Learn a new skill and develop new leisure interests
  • Increase confidence of participants
  • Opportunity to meet new people
  • Gain qualification missed out on first time round
  • Achieve skills and qualifications to enhance career prospects

Student Stories

Local residents from the Twinbrook area returned to study at SERC and completed the Access Certificate in Foundation Studies, which is accredited by Queen's University. This course was delivered over 2 years at St Luke's Primary School, Twinbrook and provides those with no formal qualifications an opportunity to progress to University to do a degree of their choice. Since completing the course 14 of the 15 students who completed have progressed onto university.
