South Downs Campus

The South Downs Campus is the vocational hub of HSDC. If you’re looking to study in a hands-on environment that prepares you for the world of work, look no further.

HSDC lecturers are more than just teachers, they’re industry experts who know what you need to succeed.

Our Vocational courses give you the opportunity to use theories you learn in practical situations. Lecturers not only teach the skills you need to gain your qualifications, they’ll share the tips and tricks of the industry and pass on their own experience.

The support you receive at HSDC goes beyond the classroom environment. With excellent industry links, our lecturers are always looking for opportunities that will help you stand out.

There is so much more to College life than just learning. As well as developing your communication and teamwork skills in the classroom we also give you plenty of opportunities to meet new people and socialise.

Whilst studying at HSDC you can make the most of:

  • Clubs & Societies – ranging from our Enterprise Society for budding entrepreneurs to the Combined Cadet Force
  • Sports teams – whether you’re interested in athletics, trampolining, table tennis or football, there are plenty of opportunities for you to get active
  • Student union – get involved! This is your chance to meet students studying different subjects, organise exciting trips and represent the student body
  • Events, gigs and performances – our South Downs Campus is the home of AMP. This means you can look forward to on-site music, theatre and dance performances. Our students also perform at events in and around Portsmouth giving you something to enjoy to outside of College hours too.

As a College HSDC has strong relationships with a number of businesses. But what does this mean for you?
