Lively campus life

We believe that coming to college should be more than just about a qualification and studying. It’s about developing your personal skills, supporting your physical and mental wellbeing, building your confidence, as well as getting you work ready. That’s why there’s loads to do on campus when you’re not busy studying.

Students’ Union

Our Tyne Coast College Students’ Union representatives work across South Tyneside College, TyneMet College, South Shields Marine School and Queen Alexandra Sixth Form. As a member of our Students’ Union you can get involved in loads of activities held throughout the year. As well as all the fun stuff, you get to have your say about college life. The best part is you can get involved as much or as little as you want – there’s no pressure.

Work experience

In other words – employment experience. Employers want to know you can handle the world of work once you finish studying with us, and our work experience placements help demonstrate that. Many of our students who complete successful work experience placements go on to secure full time employment and this could be you!

Located close to main Metro and bus routes, it’s never been easier to make your way to our campus. And don’t forget we are only 10 minutes from the beach and South Shields town centre where you’ll find a range of shops and restaurants for some after college retail therapy and relaxation.
