    Higher Education

    On this page
    ​We offer degrees in a variety of areas from Agriculture to Crime, Terrorism & Global Security and are a partner college of the University of East Anglia.​

    Welcome to Higher Education at Easton and Otley College. We hope you find the information here useful and supportive to aid your decision process in deciding on a higher education programme; whether it is sport, animal, equine, ecology, garden design or even zoology. Our College has offered Degree programmes validated by the UEA (top 1% of universities globally) since 2008.

    As a student of Higher Education, you will be expected to become a part of 'the science of your subject area', this is achieved naturally by exploring and interpreting the latest related information and research. HE students are also asked to integrate themselves into the wider HE community through taking part in 'extracurricular' activities, maybe those activities organised by our own Students' Union, if not the UEA’s.

    We’re #OfSRegistered. That means we meet the @officestudents requirements for course quality, academic standards, student support, student protection and more. For more information see www.officeforstudents.org.uk/the-register

    We hope that you will find all the information you need on the website. Do not hesitate to get in contact with one of the team if you still have unanswered questions.

    Students Union

    Higher Education students have full access to our very own and newly formed Students' Union which encourages all students from all subject areas to take part in the wider student community.

    In addition to this, our students have full access to the University of East Anglia's SU: University of Easton Anglia's Students' Union. Again we encourage students to engage in the wider University community too.

    Active participation of students into our Union and also programme committees is very much encouraged. There are multiple opportunities throughout the academic year to get involved.

    During the Induction period, programme areas will nominate a programme representative

    Autumn Programme Committee Meeting to be attended by all programme representatives

    Winter Student Forum where all students are invited

    Spring Programme Committee Meeting to be attended by all programme representatives

    Summer Programme Committee Meeting to be attended by all programme representatives

    It is not only programme representatives who can get involved, all students are encouraged to support the EOC Students' Union, and they can do this by getting involved with clubs and societies. If there are no clubs or societies that suit, then feel free to set one up!
