We have generous opening hours, opening at 8.15am and closing at 5pm, apart from Tuesdays and Thursdays when we are open until 7pm.
Virtual Learning Environment (VLE)
The College has built up a substantial virtual learning environment, known as SFX Moodle, which offers additional learning and assessment resources, closely targeted to your programme of study and this is available 24/7. It is also the route by which work may be submitted to tutors. SFX Moodle also provides a platform for interactive learning with blogs, forums, wikis, podcasts and quizzes. Students can also create their own e-portfolios to showcase their work to their tutors and to potential universities and employers.
