Did you know we have our very own fine-dining restaurant, two beauty salons and a marine academy? We even have our own animal unit where you will find pygmy goats, sheep, pigs, rabbits, meerkats and other furry friends!

Our £36 million campus provides the local area with access to world-class facilities. We provide an excellent learning environment with easy access to over 200 computers with several Mac Suites too. Of course, it’s not just about teaching and learning at South Devon College. We want students to have a good time here and that’s why we provide facilities such as the common room with a pool table and games consoles, and also outdoor spaces for those sunnier days. Our ice cream parlour can keep you cool but on a colder day you can treat yourself to something warmer in one of our many cafe spaces!

If you are a parent, that shouldn’t top you from pursuing education. Mama Bears Nursery is on our Paignton Campus so your child can be looked after whilst you are studying.
