Asfa Sohail, Principal at Lewisham College, said: “Although our buildings have been temporarily closed, all Lewisham College staff have been working hard to ensure that we can continue to host our popular events and provide an exceptional experience to our students, staff and visitors remotely.

The Virtual Open Days provide a new way for us to do that, offering prospective students the chance to experience College life and speak to our staff without leaving their homes.”

My name is Lukas.
I came to Lewisham College on a work-related learning course. It was really helpful to have prior experience of what to expect on a course.
I am now studying Catering which I am thoroughly enjoying as I am gaining an insight into all aspects of Hospitality.
I hope to further my education at LSC before I go on to work in the industry.
Staff at Lewisham College are incredibly caring and supportive. They show that they want you to succeed and help you along the way.
