Hotcourses' view on HARROW COLLEGE

It’s no surprise that students travel from all over London to study at Harrow College. With specialist career advisers on hand to offer advice and guidance, the college delivers successful results in further education and career progression. With amazing facilities on offer, whatever you are hoping to study, you will find it at Harrow. We particularly love the affiliations the college has made with leading businesses and employers, including BT, Deloitte and Marks and Spencer. If this wasn’t enough, the college has also welcomed some high profile desks, including the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall – Prince William and Kate Middleton.
