The College continued to develop partnerships with both domestic and international partners. Potential developments in both Malta and Turkey are currently being explored with the view to open up colleges in both countries delivering courses in Business, Engineering and English as a Foreign Language. Demand for Higher National Certificates/Diplomas has continued to grow as the latest cohort of students move on to the second year of their course. The high achievers are now being supported in their applications to University. The OLC team continues to strive for excellence in teaching and learning through the development of its staff across all campuses. Plans are now in place for the first ever OLC International conference where around 500 guest speakers will be invited to present papers about the Oil and Gas sector.
