We're a Hertfordshire-based College with campuses in St Albans and Welwyn Garden City

Oaklands College offers a range of full-time, part-time, apprenticeship and degree level courses. Our main provision focuses on school leavers; whether your ambition is to train for a specific trade or continue into university education - we have a course for you. We provide opportunities for 10,000 students who come from a variety of backgrounds. Explore our range of courses today!

Elite sports academies based at our College are second to none. As a student at Oaklands, you can join Oaklands Wolves and train alongside your study. With a range of sports available, you have a unique opportunity to pursue your interests in sport while studying towards a qualification.

We are at the heart of the community, providing activities and a friendly learning environment for people at all ages. Join our adult community classes to learn a new skill or explore how your child can engage in activities outside school with Children's University.

Oaklands provides a variety of services to local businesses and community through venue hire at both our campuses in Hertfordshire, or by delivering professional development courses to those already in employment. Our dedicated team will help you organise your next event no matter how big or small. We have experience in organising team building events as well as weddings and conferences.
