Hey, how are you? We hope you had a lovely summer break!

We know how unusual this previous year has been and we are feeling hopeful that we can start getting things back to a new kind of normal starting with this academic year. You'll soon be ready to make choices about the subjects and places you'd like to study after school - and that's awesome.

To help you with those choices, we've put together this dedicated page, filled with information about our college, courses, how to apply and upcoming events that will help you decide whether East Sussex College is the place you’d like to study.

Scroll down to see how we can help you build a better you.

We look forward to meeting you soon

...whether it is in person or virtually! In the meantime, if you have any questions or would like to find out more about our events or campus tours (fingers crossed) please get in touch with our School Liaison team.

College is about studying, learning, developing, and growing. You'll be able to choose from the widest range of A-Levels, Vocational and T-Level courses anywhere in the local area.

But studying at college is a given, right? You can study at any college, but at our college, we put you at the centre of everything we do. Let us explain...

We have revolutionised our courses, so you learn essential skills and you're ready to evolve in this continually changing world. We will inspire you inside and outside the classroom, motivate you to do your best, and help you set new ambitions.

We will encourage you to take action and stand up for the things you believe in, you will be included and be a part of our college community, and we'll celebrate your successes with you.

We are more than education. We are EdYOUcation.
