Grimsby Outreach Centre

Based within Grimsby Institute's stylish University Centre, is our Grimsby Centre. Grimsby is one of our outreach centres which means we don't have a permanent staff team here; however, you will be looked after by our admin team in Hull, who are fully equipped to support you through the assessment process.
