Hastings College of Arts and Technology

Technical education and training for the United Arab Emirates


In initiating this multimillion-pound project, Hastings College provides an outstanding example of innovative provision for overseas students, offering substantial evidence of student progression as well as benefit to local communities and consortium institutions. The project serves as a flagship overseas for the quality and desirability of UK vocational qualifications. Students from the UAE study English as a foreign language for one year. They then progress to various colleges of further education to undertake two or three year courses leading to BTEC and City and Guilds’ qualifications in engineering, information technology, business or related disciplines.
