Great Teachers

General staff and college teachers are selected for their qualifications and practical experience to enable the college to offer good quality, classroom-based education. We have a high success rate amongst those who complete a given course. Classes are small enough to enable teachers to relate to students as individuals and large enough to create a vibrant atmosphere.

Affordable Fees and Funding opportunities

As a private college we are able to control our own fee structure and it has always been our goal to offer students quality college education at affordable fees. By controlling our own fees we aim to give students value for money when selecting us as their place of learning.

The College of Central London is 'Accredited by the British Accreditation Council for Independent Further and Higher Education'.

The recent changes in government policy towards funding education in the UK has brought about specific funding opportunities in the form of Professional and Career Development loans for learners from UK and Europe pursuing college and university studies.
