Here at Lewisham Southwark College, we passionately believe in the idea of life-long learning for any adult, regardless of background or ambition, and most of our students are, in fact, adults who want to improve their knowledge in general or specific areas.

We are proud to offer a wide range of programmes at many different levels – from beginners’ classes to higher education qualifications.

Lewisham Southwark College also offers 85 per cent of Higher National Certificates (HNCs) and 58 per cent of Higher National Diplomas (HNDs).

If you are not quite ready to study at a higher education level though, we can offer you short programmes to prepare you for higher education later on, when you feel ready. At which point, you may wish to take your qualification you gain here, and build on it at university with a full degree.
