Lewisham Southwark College is a friendly community, in which learning is celebrated and supplemented with practical application. Here, you will get the chance to befriend like-minded individuals, bounce ideas off classmates and take more responsibility for your own progress.
But what's it actually like to study with us?
Don't expect to read textbooks every day at Lewisham Southwark College, or to sit behind a desk for five days a week!
We strive to make your time with us as worthwhile and engaging as possible, and your experience at College will be anything but dull.
As well as hands-on subject resources, some of our more general facilities include:
- Learning Support and Resource Centres
- Open areas for team working
- Open computer rooms
- Student intranet
- Student Wi-Fi access
Our new Southwark campus features vibrant, communal areas for group work, and an on-site coffee shop and canteen.
And a number of our programmes also include an element of work experience, so you'll get a taste for real-life work alongside your studies.
It's not just about your learning environment inspiring you, though. Whatever you specialise in, we want to see you seeking to grow and develop in talent. You've come to the College and, now, you have the opportunity to think about your goals for the future.
If you've had an ambition buried away for ages, but haven't been able to do anything about it, our knowledgeable teachers can help nurture your abilities in your chosen field – so you can become the person you'd like to be.
Don't let your dreams pass you by: choose the right course for you, enjoy it, and use it as a springboard to get you to your next destination.
