Why choose us?

For most of our students, football is why they choose us, but it doesn’t stop there.

Shrewsbury Town College and University is the only education provider in Shropshire supported by a professional football club, providing our students with unique opportunities that they cannot get anywhere else. We aim to support our students on and off the pitch, no matter what they are studying, and aspire to further their passion for sport in wide range of courses to prepare them for a career in the sports industry.


Developing the future workforce in the sports industry is the driving force behind Shrewsbury Town College and University.
