Where can you study?

Colleges of Further Education are popular with students taking university preparation courses or completing vocational qualifications on a full or part time basis. Colleges in the UK, USA, Australia, New Zealand and many other countries perform a variety of roles, including further education for 16-18 year-olds, vocational training and adult education.

Most of these colleges are public institutions, but there are also many private colleges which cater to specific types of students as well. Courses at UK colleges last for either one or two years.

Types of Programs

Vocational programs mainly lead to industry skills certificates (either for-credit or non-credit) and associate’s degrees. Examples of associate’s degrees awarded at the end of vocational programs include the Associate of Arts and the Associate of Science, but the most common vocational degree is typically the Associate of Applied Science. The types of credentials offered may vary by the field of study and the institution offering the program.

Course Topics

Vocational instruction is offered in many areas, including health care, creative fields, computer networking, food preparation and cosmetology. Vocational education is also available in skilled trades, such as heating and air conditioning (HVAC), plumbing, electrical systems and automotive repair. Examples of specific vocational classes might include the following:
