Easton&Otley College is an Associate College of UEA specialising in land-based provision. It has campuses in Easton in Norfolk and Otley in Suffolk. Higher Education (HE) is currently delivered on the college’s Easton campus. In August 2012, Easton College merged with Otley College to form Easton & Otley College. UEA has had a partnership arrangement with the College since 2006.
The College offers both further and higher education, and predominately provides courses for the agricultural and horticultural industries; this has been complemented over recent years with the development of a broader range of specialist vocational courses ranging from equestrian studies and animal care, through to ecology, construction, and sports studies. Easton & Otley College’s UEA validated courses include: Agricultural management; Animal Science and Welfare; Ecology and Conservation; Football Studies and Coaching; Health, Fitness, Strength and Conditioning; Sports Coaching Science; Crime, Terrorism and Global Security; Zoology; and Land-based Sciences. Students who successfully complete validated courses will be awarded a UEA degree.
The college’s Easton campus is located seven miles west of Norwich, right next to the Norfolk Showground which hosts a variety of events each year from the Royal Norfolk Show to Sundown Festival. Set on a 245 hectares of idyllic farmland, the Easton campus boasts facilities such as a tennis centre, 3G all-weather pitches, a state-of-the-art Equestrian Centre, on-site accommodation, and a working farm. The Otley campus is located 9 miles outside of Ipswich, Suffolk, and offers a similarly broad range of further education courses from Horticulture to Food Safety. Otley has its own Animal Care Centre, Equine facilities, and Construction Centre.
