HND in Social and Community Work (Community Development) Entry Requirements

Entry requirements:

  • Generally a minimum of one A level (in an appropriate subject) or
  • 5 GCSEs or a BTEC National Award or GNVQ Advanced Qualification at pass level or
    equivalent, or
  • Any equivalent overseas qualification, or
  • Applications from mature students with relevant experience are welcome

Recognition of Prior Learning for Admission

Where an applicant has relevant prior learning which is at a level lower than the course being
applied for, that learning will be relevant in terms of whether it meets, or contributes to
meeting, the entry requirements for the first year of a course. This forms part of the admissions
process and is covered under the College’s Recruitment, Selection and Admission Policy.

English Language Requirement

Applicants who wish to apply for the course must provide evidence of proficiency in English
Language to a minimum of level CEFR B2 /IELTS 5.5 (Reading and Writing must be at 5.5) through a
certificate from an approved awarding body (e.g. City and Guilds, Edexcel, Cambridge ESOL, TOEFL,
Trinity, PTE 51) or complete an English assessment set by London Churchill College. Evidence of
proficiency in English is not required if the applicant has studied the last two years (example GCE or
GCSE) or equivalent qualification in the English medium.

Additional support will be provided on specific days organised by LCC to those students who have
already gained admission by satisfying the requirement and still want to improve their English.

Admission Interview:

All shortlisted applicants will be invited for an interview as part of the College’s selection process.
