We’re not selective, but we’re not for everyone. Our challenging technical, practical and academic curriculum is not an easy option. We have a very mature, calm and purposeful learning environment, and require students to be fully committed to our approach.
The UTC prepares students for a seamless transition into the workplace and for this reason we operate a longer working day than most schools. Our hours begin at 8.45am and finish at 4.15pm, with a 20 minute morning break and a 30 minute lunch.
All required work is completed within this time frame therefore we do not issue formal homework.
We also do not operate a bell. Students are expected to effectively manage themselves, as they would at university or in employment, and arrive at lessons on time and ready to learn.
