Running 17 full time courses which are divided between 3 schools – The School of Business & IT, The School of Caring and The School of Art & Leisure, we currently cater for almost 500 full-time students.

The college also provides a career and education advice service to help those who want to progress to higher learning after completing their studies at MBC.

Communications with students will be via college email and Moodle so please check these regularly as well as our social media sites.
