Coming to a college to undertake HE qualifications can be a smart move, especially in terms of costs. At Lewisham Southwark College, our competitive prices make us an appealing institution for many. It’s also estimated that tuition fees of foundation degrees, for example, can be less expensive than the costs for full honours degrees.
The costs of our HE courses are as follows:
- Full Time Undergraduate Course Fee - £6,165 per year
- Part Time Undergraduate Course Fee - £4,625 per year
You may also be able to apply for relevant financial support, should you be eligible and successful in your application for an accepted programme. Why not have a look at the HE student finance section within the above link?
You should expect to pay tuition fees for every year in attendance and be aware these fees may increase annually. On the basis of current government guidance any increase is unlikely to exceed the increase in inflation by reference to the Retail Price Index (RPI).
Further information about our fees and bursaries can be seen in our OFFA Agreement.

For students to be eligible for funding from Student Finance England, they must be studying on an eligible course at a provider registered with the Office For Students (OFS). The OFS is the new independent regulator for Higher Education in England and all Higher Education providers need to register with the OFS for their students to be eligible for student support in the 2019-20 academic year. The OFS will start publishing providers on its register form July 2018. We have made an application to register and expect a decision by [July/September] 2018. No provider will be able to confirm whether student support is available until it has a decision from the OFS.

You’ll have put in a lot of effort to successfully complete your course, so we love to recognise and celebrate this achievement at the end of your programme. We hold our own graduation ceremonies as well as at our partner universities, meaning you’ll celebrate your qualification from the comfort of our campus, or at a connected university – so you shouldn’t have to travel too far!
And although graduation is a time for looking back at how far you’ve come, it’s also the beginning of your future. It’s important to note that some HE qualifications – like foundation degrees and HNDs – can set you up especially well for employment or additional education. Here’s what one website included:
We’re proud of our experienced staff in the heart of London: they’re ready to help strengthen your knowledge in your chosen subject area as soon as you start with us. And whatever campus you choose to study at – whether that be Southwark, Lewisham Way or Deptford Bridge, we’re here to help you gain the qualification you need.
Get in touch to see what programme you could enrol on, so we can nurture your abilities and you’ll benefit from the expertise of our wonderful staff.
Perhaps you’ve already completed a further education qualification with us, and you’re keen to stay in the same area whilst completing a HE programme at the College. Or maybe you’ve lived in the City all your life, and you’re keen to move out of your parental home to gain more independence and work towards a HE qualification with us. We also attract students from Europe who may have studied to H.E. in their home countries but now require UK qualifications.
Well, whatever your situation, we’ve got good news – the advantage of studying within cities like London is the mix of accommodation on offer. Although we don’t offer halls of residence or properties of our own, there are a lot of flat shares around, and you could check out sites such as www.spareroom.co.uk as well as various estate agents to explore your options.
We think our London location is a big advantage for our students. Not only are you close to numerous businesses, facilities and potential work experience opportunities, but our campuses are spread out over three commutable spots in the City.
Southwark campus, for instance, is close to the Young Vic, the Old Vic and the South Bank and can be reached from the tube and various mainline stations. This campus also has a feel that’s more like the workplace, with the surrounding buzz and activity of central London.
Lewisham Southwark College is based at Deptford Bridge, Lewisham Way and Southwark and most of our HE courses are carried out at Lewisham Way. Why not find out more about specific course locations by following this find us link, or drop in at one of our events to have a look around?
Our Lewisham Way campus is also just down the road from Goldsmiths University.
