Medway UTC is a University Technical College for 14–19 year olds wanting to lay strong career foundations in engineering and construction as part of their GCSE and A Level curriculum.

Medway UTC is fully equipped with state of the art facilities to enable and enhance the ‘learning by doing’ approach to delivering the engineering and construction focus of the UTC.

Students work alongside the University of Greenwich and some of the region’s largest employers to gain the skills and confidence to succeed and achieve their future goals. Students develop the skills that employers demand and therefore gain the qualifications, knowledge, skills and understanding to access further and higher education.

Medway UTC offers an enrichment programme to broaden students’ studies and to develop their own interests. These activities include music lessons, basketball, coding, creative writing and football.
