Campus Features

Whilst Central does not own it's own accommodation or halls of residence, the school has a dedicated, Student Advice Service (SAS) that supports students in their search for housing whilst studying on our full time degree courses. The SAS manages the allocation of University of London Housing Services, runs two annual sharers days at the school, manages a online, Facebook Accommodation group and gives other general support. As Central is a relatively small institution with an even smaller intake each year, the SAS are able to provide hands on support for those holding offers to study at Central.

    Scholarships and Funding

    Central has a range of scholarships and bursaries available for prospective students which change each year. To find out more information about these, please visit the website.
