About College Life

Vocational & Applied Diplomas

You were born to be great 

Maybe you’re luckier than you think. Maybe you already know for certain what you want to do. This is your chance to get started.

Vocation. It means something you feel compelled or ‘called’ by your inner self to do. And it’s good to have a strong idea because you’ll be more motivated to succeed, quite apart from saving you a whole lot of years leading a listless life of putting things off.

Vocational courses at West Suffolk College introduce you to the career of your choice in progressively more detailed and challenging depth, leading to ever higher qualifications.

Vocational courses and applied diplomas

Applied diplomas take a more general subject, like science or music and focus your study on how that subject applies to different potential careers, like forensics, or studio sound engineering.

Either way, whether you want to use the qualification to go into a job, or to get you a place at uni to study for a degree, specialising in this way early on is time well spent.

Show me the future of me.
