Combined with the vocational nature of BTEC programmes and the focus on student centred learning, individual attention is available and peer working is encouraged to help learners create a stimulating, enriching and unique study environment.
I studied my BIFM Level 4 Certificate here and the tutors were very dedicated and helpful. Also the tutors would return coursework very quickly with recommendations on how to improve your work. I will be taking the next level of this course at this college.
Having originally started a BTEC Level 7 Extended Diploma in Strategic Management and Leadership at another college and having trouble getting my grades accepted by the awarding body, I transferred to the College of Central London in order to get my work marked and officially approved by BTEC. I found them to be very knowledgeable and proactive in problem solving. The tutors and advisors. Were very helpful in getting things sorted out for me. To be honest I was very upset with the previous college who let me down so badly. It is uplifting and inspiring when you meet people ready to help you at the moment when you think everything is lost. I am delighted I met the people at the college of central London who helped me achieve the BTEC Level 7 qualification and get accepted to study an MBA in London. Thanks to them, I managed to achieve my goal and obtaining a Distinction in my MBA studies and graduated in September 2016. I can recommend the college to anyone who is busy at work and wants to study for a level 7 qualification and top up to MBA. If I can do it, then this path is open to others. The college of Central London is experienced and knowledgeable about all things business and management and you can feel confident in achieving the result within the timeline set.
CCL is a little gem! The tutors and support team are extremely dedicated to helping you achieve your personal qualification goals, and married with being tremendously knowledgeable within the FM industry provided me with amazingly rounded and fulfilling experience during the completion of CBIFM Level 6 qualification. I would recommend the college to anyone who wants to develop themselves further, and in fact have sent a number of my FM team to the college to undertake courses because of my experience.
Studying in the College of Central London was an amazing experience for me as I had the opportunity to do a BTEC HND in Computing Systems & Development - Fast Track in 1 Year. The fast track mode is great and my tutor Purna Roka was very helpful and gave me all the support that I needed. Mr.Nicolas is an incredible person who is always prompt to give help or information when needed. I highly recommend this college to anyone who wants to pursue an Higher Education in London.
Our son had taken time out of the traditional educational path and CCL gave him the opportunity to study a course in a shorter period and achieve grades that attracted offers from 5 Universities. The Principal was extremely supportive throughout the course and kept us informed as needed. He will be studying a Business & Management degree in Sept and honestly could have never have achieved this without this college and staff, thank you.
