At Chelsea – whose facilities are currently being completely overhauled and upgraded in time for the new academic year – you’ll discover millinery, fine art, photography, graphic design, tailoring &
streetwear, and illustration, drawing & printmaking.

And at the newly-refurbished North Kensington Centre, you’ll find our Foundation Degree in Early Years, a collaboration with Kingston University.

Five things that make HE at Morley special

You’ll find that we’re more than just a college…we’re a community of adult learning, with a melting pot of diverse cultures, interests, skills and opportunities just waiting for you to discover.

Here are five things that are special about HE at Morley:

  1. Our centres – at North Kensington, Chelsea and Waterloo – are equipped with tailor-made facilities for the courses we offer, and we’re continuing to invest each year in keeping those facilities up to scratch.
  2. You’ll have the opportunity to be part of the rich Morley ecosystem, including being involved in Morley Radio, Morley Gallery, and dipping into all sorts of weird and wonderful learning opportunities thanks to our leading short course curriculum.
  3. Our lecturers have specialist professional backgrounds, which means you get taught each and every day by industry experts at the highest quality.
  4. We work hard to engage with local and national employers in the sectors aligned to the courses we teach. So you can be sure that what you learn is highly relevant to the outside world.
  5. We also understand that you might want to work alongside studying for a qualification so we’ve designed our higher education class hours to be kept to one or two days a week, and you’ll have access to top notch support from our Student Services and wider staff teams.

What do our students say?

Hannah Uzor, Morley graduate

Hannah Uzor studied HNC Fine Art at the Chelsea Centre for Creative Industries.

“I chose Morley because I wanted a degree in Fine Art and Morley was offering equivalent Level 4, 5 and 6 Fine Art courses that costs less than going to University.

“The courses challenge your technical skills and
teach you to think like an artist. There is also a lot of practical teaching and the staff are really supportive.

“I enjoyed the smaller setting, which is less intimidating than University with more opportunities for experimentation, which allowed me to make mistakes and develop my skills.

“I was accepted for my Masters in Painting at the Slade School of Fine Art (UCL) and was privileged to be awarded the Milein Cosman Scholarship for Drawing. Once I complete my MA I will be continuing with
my professional practice and artistic research as a springboard for my plans to obtain a PhD.”
