Applications Open at UCM

UCM (University College Isle of Man) has opened its applications for full-time and substantial part-time courses starting in September 2024.

The University College opened its applications at its annual Open Evening which was held last week (16th November) and saw 600 people attending.

As well as a wide range of popular course that are often in high demand such as Business Administration, Health and Social Care, and Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy, UCM has also added Leadership & Management, Sport & Creative Visual Practice to its curriculum for the next academic year.

UCM’s Principal Jesamine Kelly said: ‘It was great to see so many people attending our open evening last week, I hope that they really enjoyed finding out about all the wonderful things you can study at UCM. We’re extremely proud that we support learners from age 14, through our school links project, right up to people in their 90s who choose our ‘Just for Fun’ adult learning courses, and everything in between.

‘At UCM we’re constantly reviewing our offering to ensure that it meets the needs, interests and aspirations of students, as well as supporting the Island’s industries.’

UCM provides a wide range of courses for school leavers and adults, as well as a comprehensive school links programme. Courses for school leavers include a wide range of A-level equivalent options. As one of the top university destinations for Islanders, UCM offers a variety of undergraduate and postgraduate courses.’

The Minister for Education, Sport and Culture, Julie Edge MHK added: ‘It is inspiring that so many people have shown an interest in the broad range of courses which are available at UCM. Through ‘Our Island Plan’ the Department made a commitment to lifelong learning and development opportunities for all and UCM supports this in being able to offer courses for students aged 14+. I would like to thank all of the staff at UCM who were involved in making this a successful event’.
