South Cheshire College was founded in 1843 as the Mechanics' Institution by the London and North Western Railway Company. It became South Cheshire College in 1982 and thanks to a £74 million investment the college boasts a new site with state-of-the-art facilities. 

Courses and Teaching

The college offers foundation degrees validated by Manchester Metropolitan University, University of Wolverhampton and others. Subjects offered include Applied Science, Art, Building Management, Business, Counselling, Early Years Education, Engineering, Hospitality, Teaching and Tourism Management. 


Foundation degrees at South Cheshire typically cost £5,000 per year. 

Student Life 

Crewe has its own pubs, bars and clubs but good transport links to Liverpool and Manchester mean that some of the best theatre, clubbing, live music and eating experiences are within easy reach. 


A brand new campus has been built within walking distance of Crewe station. 


The college does not provide accommodation. Students can expect to spend £50-60 per week on private accommodation. 


A multi-million pound campus opened in 2010 and provides open student-friendly work spaces and areas for students to exhibit their work.
