WMC - The Camden College Overview Image

WMC - The Camden College (WMC) is a fantastic place to study.

Students love WMC's friendly atmosphere, our truly supportive teachers, the wide ranging student support, great facilities and café, the inspirational diversity - 'outstanding equality of opportunity'. We remain small enough to know all our students and to respond to their individual needs. In April 2013 the College received grade 1 'Outstanding Overall' by Ofsted and became London's first college, and one of only five colleges nationally, to be graded Outstanding overall by Ofsted since the introduction of the new inspection framework.

WMC - The Camden College is based in Camden Town in Central London, one of London's most culturally exciting, diverse and dynamic locations which has also recently become London's newest creative hub. We are just a few steps from Koko and Mornington Crescent tube (2mins); 10 mins to St Pancras International (and Paris), the British Library, Camden Lock Market, the Roundhouse and just round the corner from loads of shops, pubs, bars, restaurants, clubs and music, drama and art venues.

Sitting inside our 1904 listed building with its stunning Victoriana, wonderful Old Library and arts and crafts ceiling you will find bright airy studios dedicated for jewellery, ceramics, art, fashion and digital media plus great PC/Mac and library areas. Students rush to our light-filled Ruskin Café for good home cooked food, study and lively discussion.

Ofsted also said the College has 'Outstanding visual arts, ESOL, Outcomes for Learners, Quality of Teaching, Learning and Assessment'. So, altogether the best place for adults to learn in central London. Not surprising given our history. Founded in 1854 to bring 'liberal arts to the working man', and merged in 1967 with its sister Working Women's College, WMC is the oldest adult education institution in Europe - and still delivering outstanding results for adults.

Great course, great value!
by Tom - August 2015

I thought this course was excellent. Equipment was spot-on, and the teacher was full of enthusiasm for the possibilities of Logic Pro. He explained even the most sophisticated elements of the software clearly and with great patience – and jokes too! We had a lot of fun and got inspired to make mad music, all for 150 quid.

Excellent beginners' Hindi course
by VK - August 2014

I had no previous knowledge of Hindi before starting this course, only heard words and phrases from Bollywood films. Now after just two terms, I am able to read and write in the Hindi script and have a basic conversation. The course has been delivered very well, the tutor accommodates for all the students' needs. I would recommend this course without a doubt and looking forward to Level 2!

speaking and writing hindi in just a term
Hindi Stage 1b
by cristina - July 2014

Excellent course. Very well researched and prepared by the teacher without the need of a course book. Delivered very enthusiastically and with a variety of media it makes learning Hindi after a long day at the office fun and interesting. I just couldn't wait for Wednesdays to have the class.

Hindi - beginner level 1 @ WMC Camden
by KD - July 2014

Just finished first year of Hindi, looking forward to continuing in September. Really interesting course, fun and friendly, loved learning script and learning how to communicate in Hindi - a great mix of written practice, speaking, listening to and watching clips of Hindi language.
