Our Higher Education students recognise the many practical benefits of staying close to home and completing their qualification locally. They choose to remain at home because the cost of attending university can be much higher. For example higher course fees and higher accommodation and living costs.
Students who live at home are able to benefit from the higher education experience just as much as those who choose to go away to university. Whereas, traditionally, students may have moved away from home to experience university; attending a local college for a quality higher education/degree level course is fast becoming a preferred option.
Staying local will allow you to live at home, continue with your part-time work and study for a higher education/degree level course at the same time.
Local accommodation options
If you are moving into the Halton / Merseyside area, then deciding where you live whilst you study at Riverside College will be an important decision.
Please contact our Pastoral Support Worker for Adults and Higher Education for information on local accommodation options: Kerry.firstname.lastname@example.org.
