Dress Code

It is important that you dress ready to learn. There is an industry-standard dress code which you must abide by for health and safety, and personal protection reasons in some areas.

These include Hair and Beauty, Public Services, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering. If your programme has a uniform or specific dress code, you will be made aware of this during your enrolment.

For those studying other programmes at the college, we do not have a formal dress code/uniform, but we do ask all students to be mindful that the college is a professional learning environment. Therefore, we ask you not to wear:

  • Clothes that cause offence to others.
  • Clothing with discriminatory, explicit or sexual slogans or images.
  • Hoods, helmets or hats whilst inside (unless this is PPE as part of your programme).
  • Excessively high heels (for health and safety reasons).

For some of your timetable, you may be studying remotely from home. When attending your online lessons at home, we ask that you also dress appropriately in line with the above guidelines, as this still forms part of your professional learning environment.
