Southwark College has strong partnerships with leading London universities, enabling our students to ‘top up’ their Higher Education courses to a full Honours degree within a university environment.
We partner with University of East London, University of Greenwich and Canterbury Christ Church University, while we are also part of NCG – one of the largest and most successful college groups in the UK, and the first to have been awarded Taught Degree Awarding Powers.
Students on our foundation degree, HND and HNC courses have the option of gaining a full degree either at Southwark College or with one of partner universities when they finish their course. In many cases this will be an automatic progression (i.e. you will automatically be accepted on to the degree course provided you pass your initial HE qualification).
The location of your top-up studies will depend on the course you are studying.
Through our partnerships, our students are not only able to raise their employment prospects by boosting their qualification, they are also able to access our partner universities’ libraries, state-of-the-art facilities and specialised learning resources.
