Higher education

Gaining an HE qualification is a great way to develop in your chosen sector, whether you want to build on your current studies or are looking to return to study.

Our courses are designed to give you the advanced technical, analytical and professional skills employers are looking for. Through our partnerships with leading businesses, we build work placements into many of our HE courses, enabling you to gain real-world experience and a head start in the job market when you graduate. You will also benefit from:

  • 46% lower fees than most universities
  • Small class sizes
  • Flexible delivery to fit around work and family commitments. Students can also choose whether to take a shorter HE qualification and progress to employment or continue to a ‘top up’ third year to gain a full degree
  • Strong vocational focus, with work experience built into the course
  • Great facilities equipped with innovative learning technologies
  • Local, easily accessible location

At Southwark College, we can offer a local option for your HE studies, backed by a highly renowned national group. We are part of NCG, the first group in the UK to have Taught Degree Awarding Powers, and our courses draw on the Group’s long experience of providing high quality HE qualifications.

Access and Participation Plan

The Southwark College Access and Participation Plan sets out how we will improve equality of opportunity for underrepresented groups to access, succeed in and progress from higher education.

It includes:

  • Our ambition for change
  • What we plan to do to achieve that change
  • The targets we have set
  • The investment we will make to deliver the plan

Student Protection Plan

Our Student Protection plan sets out what students can expect to happen should a course, campus, or institution close. The purpose of the plan is to ensure that our students can continue and complete their studies, or can be compensated, if this is not possible.

All higher education providers registered with the Office for Students (OfS) must have a student protection plan in place.

You can also download our HE Review Action Plan and Single Equalities Scheme or find out more on our HE Regulatory Documents.

Music is a subject you study because you love it – which might not go for every subject. It’s an area where you can really unleash your creative streak and it allows you to work in a really cool industry.
