Southwark College has opened its doors for enrolment and there are limited places on courses starting this September. If you are looking to secure a place on a course or get back to education, visit our campus in SE1 to enrol.

The College offers a wide range of courses for 16-18-year-olds and adults, including Vocational and Professional Qualifications, GCSEs and BTECs, English, Maths, ESOL and IELTs, Pre-Access and Access to Higher Education, Supported Learning and Internships and Employability courses to help you get into work.

What is enrolment?  

Enrolment will confirm your place on a course, the level of course you should take, any fees you might be asked to pay and start date for your course, along with other useful information on the student support available. This is also where you will receive your learner agreement and student ID card.

  • A copy of your enrolment invitation either on your phone or printed
