Welcome to COLAB

When you study a creative course with us, you’ll be part of CoLab - a collaborative way of learning and working which brings together skills and specialisms from across the college. As a CoLab student you’ll have the unique opportunity to develop skills within your particular vocational area and you’ll also get the chance to apply these skills as you would in industry. You can read more here.
