Welcome to Kensington and Chelsea College

Welcome to Kensington and Chelsea College. Thank you for taking time to visit our website and considering our College.

Ensuring that you are on the right course is important to us which is why we have a team of dedicated, qualified advisors ready to help and support you in making this decision to study with us.

Our friendly, supportive staff are on hand to make sure you have a brilliant experience from the word go. This includes our highly qualified teaching and lecturing staff who are among the best industry connected and award winning tutors you could wish for.

About us

We want you to feel inspired outside of the classroom as well as inside it. Kensington and Chelsea College has lots of fantastic resources and support networks in place to help you settle into college life, make new friends and discover new and exciting opportunities.

Each year our students go on to achieve big things. Over the past year we have had students setting up their own business and selling their designs in Fenwick and Fortnum and Mason, to winning national awards, taking part in public exhibitions and seeing their designs worn by Lady Gaga and Angelina Jolie.

Our youth work team provides a programme of activities and services throughout the year, especially for our students aged under 19 years. Some of the extracurricular opportunities on offer include organised trips such as skiing, paintballing and going to the cinema; awareness events; volunteering opportunities within the community; Jack Petchey Awards; sporting events and opportunities to join the College sports team.


Facilities available

Both of our main centres are based in vibrant, exciting locations in the heart of London. Our Chelsea Centre is by the famous King’s Road, whilst our Kensington Centre is in the heart of trendy Portobello. The College also has strong links and partnerships with many of the world-class organisations surrounding it, which has led to some amazing experiences for our students including jobs at the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Science Museum.

Learner success

The success of our students is one of the many things that make us stand out as a College. Each year we produce some of industry’s brightest stars such as our former millinery student Justin Smith, who helped create the headpiece worn by Angelina Jolie in Disney’s ‘Maleficent’.

The success of our students is matched by our high-profile national and international reputation for world-class excellence in Creative Arts including Fine Art, Fashion, Millinery, Photography, Design and Sculpture.
