Brit College currently offers a Level 5 BTEC Higher National Diploma in Business awarded by EDEXCEL and Pearson and a Level 6 BA (Hons) (Top-up) Business and Management, run in partnership with the University of Northampton.
The College made a conscious decision to streamline its provision whilst building a broader range of qualifications that we hope to offer in the academic year 2019-20. I would like to highlight some arrangements you can benefit from as a student at Brit College.
Brit College is part of the community of Tower Hamlets and neighbouring boroughs. Our programmes meet the needs of these, and other, communities within Greater London. On completing your studies, you will be equipped with a Higher National Diploma or a degree that can widen your career prospects and opportunities and which may help you to either secure employment or acquire the promotion or new career that you have been waiting for. On completing your studies with us you will have acquired skills that could help you establish your own business as well as leadership and personal skills that can enhance your status in society. This embodies the employability theme that supports our choice of courses. We have also established an Employability Forum that links local employers to the College enabling them to deliver talks and master classes and play a role in designing courses that meet the employment needs of local communities.
Everything we do at Brit College is driven by our desire to reach out to the harder to reach sections of society, who may have missed opportunities for degree level qualifications, and our widening participation strategy that brings together people of diverse backgrounds, abilities and cultures to work and learn together.
Your student experience will therefore be enhanced in ways that exceed your expectations. We are happy to invite you to join us and help enrich the experience of all students and staff as well as your own.
Teaching at Brit College is tailored to the needs of individual students. We welcome individuals who can learn and shine as part of a vibrant community and shine as individuals. This is the student engagement approach that places all our students at the centre of all our efforts.
The community at Brit College is continuously seeking new ways of improving the student learning experience, driven by our enhancement strategy.
Welcome to Brit College from the Vice Principal
I am pleased to welcome you as part of the Brit College community. I hope that you enjoy your time here and make the best of your studies.
In 2018 Brit College won the Independent Higher Education Award for Outstanding Support for the Student Learning Experience and the IHE Award for Excellence in Student Collaborations and the BTEC College of the Year award in 2019
Brit College is proud of its educational provision and its links to the local community. We have a strong commitment to providing access to, and encouraging participation in higher education. We strongly believe that investing in education provides real benefits for individual students, the community and the wider economy. We also have a strong commitment to engaging with, and listening to our students and stakeholders. Our choice of courses and qualifications are designed to give our students the opportunities and benefits that they are looking for.
Brit College is also committed to supporting our students throughout their studies. Our website and student handbook sets out the services and resources available to help students with their studies. If you do experience problems or just need help, please do let us know. Our Student Engagement and Support Team will be happy provide useful information and let you know where to go for more detailed help and advice. Our friendly campus receptions will be happy to point you in the right direction.
Once again, welcome to Brit College and best wishes with your studies
BRIT COLLEGE IS NOW OFFICE FOR STUDENTS REGISTERED!
The Office for Students (OfS), the new independent regulator for higher education in England, came into force in 2018.
All higher education institutions (HEIs) in England can apply to become a registered provider with OfS.
Being registered means a higher education provider has demonstrated to the OfS that it:
- provides well-designed courses that deliver a high-quality academic experience for all students
- ensures students’ outcomes are valued by employers or enable further study
- awards qualifications that hold their value over time, in line with recognised standards.
- pays regard to guidance about how to comply with consumer protection law.
- has a published student protection plan setting out the risks of course, campus or provider closure and how it will protect students’ interests in such an event.
- has the financial resources to provide and deliver the courses advertised
- has the management and governance arrangements necessary to provide and deliver the courses advertised.
We are delighted to announce that Brit College's application for registration with the OfS has now been approved. This is excellent news as it means we meet the OfS requirements for course quality, academic standards, student support, student protection and more. Registration also ensures that our students can continue to apply for Student Loans for their studies and it is a testimony to the hard work of all staff involved in the lengthy application and registration process. Congratulations everyone!
