About this open day
During our Open Day, you’ll have the opportunity to meet our friendly staff and current students who will be happy to answer any questions you may have, discover our wide range of courses for 16-18s and adults and take a tour of our facilities.
We look forward to welcoming you on our On-Campus Open Day!
Open Days at Lewisham College are designed to help you find out more about our courses and how we can help you reach your potential.
Our on campus and online events provide an insight into a variety of sectors and provide the opportunity to network with industry professionals.
We regularly hold events in partnership with external stakeholders which are designed to inspire you to learn more about your chosen industry, boost your employability skills and plan your next steps.
Can I study the same subjects across both campuses?
No, our Lewisham Way campus has a wide range of facilities (eg our on-site beauty salon and restaurant) and offers courses in a variety of subject areas, while our Deptford campus specialises in construction training, with industry-standard construction equipment and trades workshops.
What’s the difference between being a full-time and part-time student?
A full-time student does more than 12 hours’ study at the College per week. Part-time students attend evening classes.
How do you make sure students are safe while at College?
We’re strongly committed to safeguarding our students and staff while they are at College. For this reason, we require you to wear your ID badge at all times when on our campuses and anyone not wearing ID will be challenged. Both campuses have a security system in place to prevent unauthorised people from entering the building.
I am an international student, can I apply for a course?
The College accepts applications from international students. All courses are subject to availability, eligibility and additional support requirements, which will be determined during an applicant meeting held either on campus or remotely after your application is received. This will include an assessment of your prior qualifications, residency/right to study in the UK and any fees that may be payable. You will not be guaranteed a place on a course until you have fully enrolled and received your Learning Agreement.
When can I come to a College open day?
We hold open days in the autumn and summer for school leavers and adult learners. Look out for these on our homepage.
How and when do I apply for a course?
You can apply by clicking the ‘Apply’ button on each of our course pages. The date when you will need to apply depends on the starting date for your course. For 16-18 courses you should ideally apply by April to start College in the September of that year.
Will I need an interview before I’m accepted on to a course?
You will not need to be interviewed, but for our 16-18 courses we will ask you to come to the College so that we can have a chat with you about your chosen programme. You will also take an English and maths assessment to check that the course is at the right level for you. Some courses may also have specific requirements.
How and when do I enrol?
Once you’ve been accepted on to a course, you’ll receive a letter from us giving you the date, time and location of enrolment as well as details of what you’ll need to bring along.
