Access to Higher Education: Humanities & Social Sciences
by James - November 2016

Truly amazing staff. The teachers were thorough, attentive, and fantastically supportive throughout my course. I returned to education after a twenty year absence and was supported form day one. The teachers really take the time to guide you, they take a keen interest in you the student, and will push you to achieve all your chosen goals. I am now studying at Cambridge University! I really recommend this course for anyone who wishes to go to university or simply has an interest in learning the social sciences.

well worth giving it a try, although computers have been a bit slow. Relaxed atmosphere, with plenty of push when needed.

It was so intense, but my skills developed so much. Can't thank my tutors enough for their guidance and support. Now about to start a Fashion BA in October ( as are most of my group) - a dream come true. Great teaching, great new rooms, made great friends there.

Fine Art at Kensington and Chelsea is very good
5 5
by Ed Hadfield - May 2012

This course offered an excellent mixture of studio time to develop my fine art practice (painting). There was also a strong emphasis on visiting contemporary art galleries inorder to develop a personal artistic language. The tutors were always on hand to offer advice and guidance. During my time on this course I've managed to get a place at Camberwell College of Art on their BA Painting course. If you are looking to move on to study art at University I would definitely recommend this course as a great way to get in to that area.
