Myerscough’s partnership with Ullswater Community College, in Penrith in Cumbria, recognises the importance of the agriculture, animal management and arboriculture sectors to the county, and how important it is that the next generation have the best possible opportunity to obtain high level qualifications locally.
This partnership will ensure the continued study of these vital sectors for Cumbrian learners leaving school after Year 11, as well as increasing options for other students in Cumbria, who perhaps previously felt full-time study so far from home was too much of an obstacle. You may also be entitled to receive up to £350 through the Rural Economy Travel Subsidy that can be used to help with travel costs to our Penrith Centre.
All of the courses below programmes follow a model currently being followed by a similar partnership Myerscough currently enjoys with Furness College, in the south of the county. Learners can still live at home, while enjoying the benefit of quality, local, academic study, with theory and classroom sessions at Ullswater, combined additional weekly travel to Myerscough College, via a free, dedicated bus service, where practical elements will be taught in state-of-the-art, sector leading facilities. If studying is not for you and prefer gain work-based learning then view our apprenticeship opportunities that are also listed below.
Myerscough’s new Cumbrian offer also includes the opportunity for full time residential study at the College’s main campus at Bilsborrow, near Preston, for learners who wish to choose to do so. In addition to the animal management, agriculture and arboriculture programmes detailed above, Cumbrian learners can apply for a range of study programmes in the land-based sector in the usual way, in subjects including Agricultural Engineering, Arboriculture, Land & Wildlife (Gamekeeping and Countryside Studies), Horticulture and Equine.
