Ranked as the no. 3 further education college in London*, Lewisham College is dedicated to serving its local community by enabling people of all ages and backgrounds to improve their career prospects through study. We provide a wide range of courses at different levels, with 100% success rates across many subject areas, and are also part of NCG – one of the biggest and most successful providers of further education in the UK.

Lewisham College offers an Access to Higher Education (HE) Diploma in Computing, while our sister institution, Southwark College, offers Access to HE Diplomas in Business, Dance, Fashion, Law, Music, Nursing, Radiography, Science and Teacher Training.

These Access courses are an excellent route to university for adults (aged 19+) who do not have the qualifications normally required or may have been out of education for some time. Taught by expert tutors in our innovative learning environment, our Access courses allow you to build your skills, knowledge and confidence – getting you to the right standard to start studying your chosen subject at HE level.

In addition to providing a high level of support throughout your studies, we have strong links with leading London universities and are committed to helping our Access students to secure a place on an HE course.

Our Access to HE Diploma in Computing is offered at Lewisham College’s main campus at Lewisham Way, SE4, which is easy to reach by train, DLR or bus.
