At Borough College London, we take our responsibility for preparing a new generation of students for vocational and professional careers very seriously. We have adopted a "client centred" approach to our tutoring, training and assessment procedures in order to offer a flexible and affordable quality education to our learners. In our experience, this philosophy effectively bridges the gap between traditional academic study and today's real world environment. Our UK learners can undertake their courses on block release, part-time day release, part-time evening or part-time weekend. Those who are prevented by distance from attending at our London campus can enrol on Blended provision to undertake their courses on-line, distance learning or attend at a study centre. Our aspiration is to not to disadvantage any serious learner on the basis of their location or other constraints.
Borough College London is a relatively new and thoroughly modern institution. We believe that a quality education can help to prepare a student to take advantage of opportunities in life. Borough College London offers students a program of study that is liberating, complete and enjoyable. Staff members are friendly and helpful, and the study atmosphere is lively and businesslike. We hire highly qualified lecturers who get to know our students and are ready to provide assistance when needed.
Our curriculum is written to help students acquire practical knowledge and skills so they are well prepared to succeed in the workplace. We offer courses leading to recognised qualification awards recognized by accredited professional bodies and universities, including:
- Diplomas of BTEC Edexcel, ATHE, OTMH, etc.

- Our degree courses are awarded by accredited universities like the University of Azteca (Universidad Azteca (Mexican Government accredited) for people who want to study as External Students.
