At Ealing, Hammersmith & West London College we provide all of our students with the support they need to succeed. The information on the following pages, including the progression list, details the progression routes available for every level for each of our subject areas.

The College also runs a number of Higher Education (HE) courses specifically developed (in partnership with leading universities and employers) to be relevant to the needs of our students. For details of HE courses that you may be able to progress onto please contact our College Information Centre on freephone: 0800 980 2175 to request a copy of our Foundation Degrees and Higher National Qualifications Guide.

Celebration of Achievement

Every year the College holds a special awards ceremony, which acknowledges the exceptional achievements made by various students. The winners are nominated by their tutors and presented with a certificate and a prize at an official ceremony. Usually the certificates are presented by a special guest. Previous guests have included Greg Dyke, Linford Christie and Bollywood star Mayur Verma. We encourage all our students to work hard and contribute to every aspect of College life.

How to use the Progression Table

Use the list below to find the level of the course that you are studying or have recently completed. Follow the immediate list down to see details of the next course available. Look through the rest of the lists at the same level to look at progression routes in a different subject until you find the subject area that you would like to progress onto. This can be any subject area in the next level up.

For example, if you successfully complete a BTEC First Diploma in Media, this is a Level 2 course; you can progress onto a BTEC National Diploma in Media at Level 3 or a BTEC National Diploma in Business Studies at Level 3 providing that you meet the individual course entry requirements, full details of which are listed in the guide.

“I initially started on the BTEC First Diploma in Computing at Southall & West London College, the support I received from my teachers was really good, after finishing this course I studied the BTEC National Diploma and am now in my first year of the Foundation Degree in Computing at Hammersmith & West London College. I hope to go onto South Bank University after my course.”
