CU London’s Grade II listed campus, located in East London, underwent a £4.5m renovation so that it provides an excellent learning experience. The building features a library with essential and recommended reading, fully equipped open access IT suites as well as extensive social spaces.
All courses are taught in vocational subject areas and are focused on equipping students with skills for the job market. If you leave before completing your three-year degree programme, you may still get a qualification. After one year of study you’d get an HNC, after two years you’d get an HND, and then after three full years of study you’ll receive your degree.
CU London has a Careers Zone on campus to help students with their employability and to develop relevant skills. The team there offers a range of support including advice on writing CVs and cover letters and preparing for interviews. Work placements, volunteering and mentoring schemes are also offered and arranged for students’ benefit.
Courses are career-focused, providing students with the theoretical and practical skills needed in the workplace. This includes transferable skills such as problem-solving and communication skills.
Courses are taught one module at a time, each one lasting six weeks. There aren’t any end of year exams; instead students are assessed within each module.
Each class has 50 students or fewer, to ensure students get the attention and support they need during their studies.
The Students’ Union, CUSU, is there to offer free advice on any issues affecting students - including housing, financial and employment issues - and to represent their views. They also organise plenty of social events and activities in the city for students to take part in.
Whether you’re new to the city or just looking to fly the nest, CU London has accommodation to meet your needs.
