Learner Support

Welcome to Lewisham College! We understand that starting College at a new place can be confusing, so we've put together this guide to your first two weeks with us. You can find information about everything from your first day and how to travel to campus, to our term dates and some of the freebies you can enjoy as a student. Welcome, and we hope you enjoy your time with us!

  • Getting started

    Got your place and enrolled? Great! Have you got everything you need to make a successful start at College? Here’s a handy list of commonly asked questions to make sure you’re ready to hit the ground running:

    What if I don’t have my Student ID?

    Before you can start at the College you will need to collect your Student ID. If you weren’t able to get yours during enrolment, don’t worry – all you need to do is bring your Learner Agreement with you on your first day of College. We recommend you come in at least 30 minutes before your course starts to allow enough time to get your pass.

    What if I don’t have my timetable?

    You should already have received your course timetable, but if not, you can pick one up on the morning your course starts. If you need to do this, please come in early to allow enough time before your lessons start.

    Where can I eat?

    You’ll find there are plenty of places to grab a bite to eat at College. As well as having on-site canteens, both our campuses are very well located for food choices:

    • Lewisham Way is only a short walk from a number of takeaways and supermarkets, and a quick bus ride away from Lewisham town centre
    • Deptford Bridge campus is just 2 minutes' walk from Deptford High Street which has plenty of takeaway options and supermarkets

    Do you have free wifi on campus?

    Yes, we do!

  • Travelling to College

    First of all, make sure you know which campus you need to attend for your course.

Don’t forget, you can always ask a member of staff who will be happy to point you in the right direction!

    • Finance and funding
    • Careers information and guidance
    • Special Educational Needs (SEN)
    • Welfare

    If you ever find yourself in need of support, or just want to have a confidential chat with an objective member of staff, feel free to visit Student Services at any time during your studies.

  • Get involved!

    Do you want to become involved in the local community, or gain some experience while meeting new people and making new friends? Students have lots of opportunities to volunteer – like being one of our Student Ambassadors who help out at events in and around the College. You may have met some of them at one of our Open Days or Enrolment.

    As well as volunteering, there are lots of other opportunities to get involved. We offer a great range of clubs – including Film Club, Street Dance or Zumba – which give you the chance to learn or improve a skill, take a break from studying, and meet students on other courses.

  • Student guides and resources

    Whether you’re continuing your education or coming back to College after a break, we can all use a little bit of guidance at times! We’ve pulled together a few of our favourite guides and forums where students of all ages can share their experiences and help each other out.

  • Fresher's Fair

    Whether you’re continuing your education or coming back to College after a break, we can all use a little bit of guidance at times! We put on a great Fresher's Fair in the Autumn to introduce you to all of the services at college, and you can pick up some great samples and freebies at the same time - what's not to love?

  • Fun freebies for students!

    One of the best things about being a student is all the opportunities, events and discounts you’re eligible to use!
