The college offers a range of higher education qualifications, from Access to Higher Education courses, work-related Higher National Certificates or Diplomas, and Foundation Degrees. It is this provision which made CONEL eligible for the award.
Commenting on CONEL’s nomination, Principal Kurt Hintz, said: “It is very satisfying to have been recognised once again by our higher education students as being a great place to learn. We are well-known in London for our free courses and our excellent provision at entry level and levels 1 and 2, so to be shortlisted for a higher education award is fantastic and a testament to the dedication and skills of our HE tutors.”
The college was ranked 4th out of the 10 shortlisted colleges, with an impressive average score of 4.4 out of 5. We are the only college in London to have been shortlisted and on 25 April, we will find out if we have won at the WhatUni Student Choice Awards in central London.
