We know that not everyone wants to start college in September and not everyone can.

We also know that some individuals need to take their studies at different speeds and may want to get different things out of their time at college, not just qualifications.

York College has created a number of Late Start programmes for young people.

These courses are bespoke, flexible courses which can be tailored to suit the needs of the individual. They’re aimed at anyone who wants to get a qualification but has not yet found a course or a college that works for them.

It is most important that you’re happy at York College and that you enjoy your studies. We want to make sure you learn, make friends, have fun and get to do things you enjoy both in and out of the classroom.

You can talk to us about any aspect of coming to York College and ask any questions, whether they’re about courses, costs, transport, or if you’re nervous about starting something new, we’ll listen to you and make sure you know we’re here to support you.


“I began studying A Levels but struggled with them and it affected my mental health, so staff at College suggested studying the Extended Project Qualification as it offered a bit more flexibility. The idea that I could write or create something around a topic of my choice instantly appealed to me. My tutors are really kind and are always there to give me help and advice.”
