The College considers applications from school-leavers or those still at school/sixth form with the commitment and maturity required to complete a BTEC Level 3 programme and who wish to gain a fast track and secure route into university or, those who want to aim for the next stage in course progression namely HNC Level 4 or HND Level 5.
A mix of cultures brings an important additional characteristic to students’ learning experiences. 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.
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.
I needed an additional 90 credits in order for me to go to university this year. CCL gave me that opportunity and helped me achieve the required credits. The principal was very helpful and understanding and was always there on-hand. I am going to UNI this year as planned and I know I would not have achieved this without CCL.
I consider myself to be highly fortunate that I came across College of Central London when I decided to once again pursue my studies. The Principle, Nicolas, was very welcoming and always made the time and effort to speak with me about any concerns and the feedback, from my submitted assignments, were also always received in a timely fashion. I would greatly recommend anyone to study at this college and could not fault anything.
The College of Central London was excellent because they helped me to achieve the equivalent to three A levels in one year. The principal and the tutors were very helpful and accommodating throughout the course providing helpful advice and improvements to each of my assignments. I would highly recommend this one year course to anyone who is interested in business and being able to work independently and being able to help with preparation for university. I am now going to University in September to study Business and Finance and I could not have done this without the college's help.
