All our courses are available for adults aged 19 on 31 August 2017 and over only.

WMC – The Camden College in London can only accept learners aged 18 and over on the UAL Foundation Diploma in Art & Design.

We are delighted you are considering learning with us here at WMC-The Camden College.

At WMC-The Camden College, we aim to provide you with the best possible learner experience to help you develop and progress personally by expanding and enriching your skills and experience. We offer a wide range of high quality education in a variety of subjects from full time accredited to part time fun courses; all delivered in our local & friendly community based college across two sites in Camden – Mornington Crescent and Kentish Town.

At WMC-The Camden College you will be learning alongside people who, like you, are embarking on their own learning journey. Whether you are retraining, preparing for the next step in your career, or looking for something fun to do, we have a wide range of part-time and short courses that will enhance your skill set, develop your talents and allow you to reach your learning goals.

For 2017/18 we have expanded our range of courses across the college whilst recognising the need to keep costs affordable. Our course offering has increased this year with new Arts, Vocational and Language courses alongside a new set of Digital Skills courses to help everybody develop and expand their IT skills.

We have extended our range of Studio classes which provide the opportunity to continue to practise and develop your creative skills supported by an expert tutor. We have a new and varied range of one day and Saturday courses as we know that you want to fit learning around your work and home commitments.

We work closely with Camden Council and this enables us to provide more learning opportunities in locally based community centres to help you improve your skills and employment opportunities.

Our Open Learning Centre provides additional support for all learners to help you to be successful in your learning. This centre and our e-learning platform, iLearn, enables learners to continue learning outside of the classroom.

We are introducing a new Level 3 qualification in Health and Social Care course for those who are looking for future employment in this area and who need to develop their skills and knowledge and achieve a formally recognised qualification.

If you are interested in one of our Level 3 courses, remember that government backed learner loans are available. If you are over the age of 19 and want to study on a Level 3 course then the Advanced Learning Loan will help you pay for your course fees. Just ask Learner Services for information or you can read more on the Advanced Learning Loan page on our website.

At WMC-The Camden College we are committed to supporting your personal development and enhancing your College experience. We want to enable all learners to achieve their potential and to enjoy their learning with us. We listen to our learners and are adaptable, flexible and responsive to their needs. Please come in and pick up a copy of the course guide or download it from the website to have a read through to see what we can do for you.

We look forward to welcoming you to WMC and hope you enjoy your studies here.
