Resourcing your learning
Godalming College not only provides outstanding teachers, we also aim to provide a  rst class range of facilities and resources to support your learning. Our ‘total learning environment’ aims to make your educational experience as enjoyable and as stimulating as possible. Here are a few of the things that you can expect:
The latest technology at your  ngertips
Godalming is an award winning college for the innovative use of technology in teaching and encourages the extensive use of PCs, tablets and hand-held devices. Free Wi  access is available across the campus. Our virtual learning environment, Godalming Online (GOL) supports your studies. In addition to individual course pages you can access content
on iSkills to help develop your essay writing, research techniques and much more. GOL can also be accessed remotely from home to support your studies.
A learning experience that stretches and challenges
Your working week will consist of 30 hours of timetabled lessons and study periods. Both inside and outside of the classroom you will be encouraged to develop the skills to be able to think for yourself. This might include group work, mentoring or individual projects and by the time you  nish your course you will be amazed at what you are capable of achieving.
The Independent Learning Centre
The ILC is at the heart of campus life, housing a library with over 18,000 books. It provides access to the latest newspapers, journals and an
extensive range of digital and online resources. Separate quiet and silent study zones with networked computers offer opportunities for independent learning and research. The Study Support Centre is also part of this learning hub. We put library periods on your timetable to encourage you to make the most of your study opportunities.
Specialist facilities
All subject areas have their own designated and purpose-built facilities. The Performing Arts Centre provides a drama studio/theatre space, music performance space, recording studios, computerised mixing desk and practice rooms. Art and Design enjoy light and airy studio space while Design Technology has a fully equipped workshop and study area with the latest CAM/CAD, 3D printing and laser cutting facilities. Other facilities include, extensive laboratory space for practical investigation in the sciences, an iMAC suite for media, a well-resourced digital language lab and fully equipped sports facilities, including a sports hall, gym and dance studio. We’ve also just opened a brand new English and Languages building with 16 state of the art classrooms. This has allowed us to open up more social space for students to
spend time outside of lessons comfortably. In essence, you will have a comprehensive learning experience using modern industry standard facilities and equipment throughout the courses you take.
