From Thursday 5 November 2020, England is in lockdown to help control the spread of the virus.

Schools, colleges and universities – including Morley – remain open and continue to operate in accordance with the guidance issued by the Department for Education. Our commitment to providing safe and enriching educational opportunities for our communities remains firmly at the heart of everything we do.

Ensuring the health and safety of our students and staff is our top priority. We continue to work hard to maintain a safe, Covid-secure environment for our students and staff, which you can read more about here.

As a consequence of more stringent national restrictions – and matching policies implemented in secondary schools – we are strengthening our commitment to the “Hands, Face, Space” policies, including requiring that face coverings are worn by all students and staff (unless they are exempt) in corridors/communal areas.

Tutors also may request the use of face coverings in some classroom settings where maintaining consistent 2 metre social distancing is not possible.

All of Morley’s Centres are registered with the NHS COVID-19 app, and we request that students download the app and check in using the QR codes displayed at all entrances.

Many of our courses are now available online for those who prefer to study from home.

Online and onsite learning options

Morley College London is offering learning opportunities both online and in our three centres in North Kensington, Chelsea and Waterloo. 

Some courses are delivered exclusively online; others have around 20% of in-centre contact time too. This means you can choose a learning style that suits you. Read more about the different options available by clicking this link.

Creating a safe environment for learning

We welcome students back to our (socially distanced) centres from September 2020.

Learning as a response to the pandemic

As the world adapts to life with COVID-19, there has never been a more important time to learn: to reskill, to upskill or to enjoy the social and personal benefits of studying something you love.

Visit our Upskill, Reskill, Enjoy page to learn about courses that are aimed at helping you discover your own ‘new normal’ in a fast-changing world.


Many college events scheduled in the immediate future are postponed until further notice unless they can be delivered in an adapted form online.
