Brooksby Melton College is a specialist independent college based in the heart of Leicestershire. It specialises in land-based courses such as animal care, equine and sports but is also a leading performing arts and media college with an excellent national profile.
BMC is UEA’s most recent educational partner. Since September 2016, we have been validating their specialist range of Foundation Degree, top-up degrees and three year degrees within Sports Science, Digital Film Production, Performing Arts, Equine Performance and Animal Management. Students who successfully complete validated courses will be awarded a UEA degree qualification.
The College has been delivering higher education since 1993 through its University partnerships. The College has seen steady improvement leading up to its recent Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) Review in October 2014, where it received a judgement of confidence in managing its academic standards, confidence in managing the quality of learning opportunities and a reliance on the accuracy of public information.
The College operates on two main sites. Brooksby Campus includes a working farm, with a range of commercial activity including banqueting and conference centre, fishing lake and a BHS approved Equestrian Centre and livery. Brooksby Campus is also equipped with a purpose built Animal Management Centre, high quality science laboratories and a brand new Sport Centre and 3G pitch. Melton Campus boasts 14 state of the art dance and media studios alongside a 24ft green screen studio, a 500 seat commercial theatre and a fine dining restaurant. The College has recently undergone a major £28m capital redevelopment of its estate, ensuring that separate HE social, teaching and study areas sit alongside high quality industry standard facilities. Strong industry links with companies including Leicester Tigers Rugby Club, Mansfield Town Football Club, Grimme, John Deere, Enter the Pitch, FA, PFA and Twinlakes makes finding employment and work placements easier.
