Southwark College

Southwark College is one of the largest further education colleges in London, with a proud history of attaining consistently high achievement rates. Our modern £41m campus is located on The Cut, opposite Southwark tube station and within walking distance of Waterloo overground station. We welcome younger and adult learners, creating employable graduates with relevant work skills.



Our teaching staff are here to help strengthen your practical, technical and professional know-how and your time with us will probably be very different to school. You'll be treated as an adult and a number of our lecturers have been within industry themselves, meaning you can learn from their expert knowledge. We want to create inspired, knowledgeable and award-winning students. And we'll strive to equip you with fundamental and hands-on expertise in a subject you're passionate about, so you're ready to take that next step.

You can potentially go on to higher education after Level 3 courses, too. We deliver HND and Access options, helping boost your prospects for some of the top universities.


Having successfully completed your qualification on a sufficient level, you should leave us with a well-rounded and applied understanding of your specialism, which is just what employers are looking for. Our flexibility means that you can either gain a shorter HE qualification and then go on to seek a job, or continue to a 'top up' third year, gaining a full degree

Student services

We offer a range of free events across the whole year as well as open days for you to find out more about us.

Housing services

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.

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, as well as various estate agents to explore your options.

Student Life

Campus life

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 we also boast a wealth on impressive state-of-the-art facilities on-site.

Our campus 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.
