The college provides pick-up facilities at the airport where pick-up bookings are made in advance and after payment of necessary charges. We charge £300 for airport pick-up with two weeks accommodation and £100 for the airport pick-up only. You will be directly taken to the point of your accommodation arranged by us. If you have arranged for your own accommodation you will have to inform the college of your arrival within 10 days, as per the UKBA guidelines.
Transport in London is quite costly, so we recommend you acquire an all-London travelcard (an ‘Oyster’ card which work on a pay-as-you-go basis) valid on all public transport across the city (in case of self arranged accommodation).
The college is located in Zone 3 in North London. It is advised that students attempt to arrange their accommodation near enough to the college location in North London to avoid difficulties in attending the class sessions. 5E College of London operates a very strict attendance policy conforming to UKBA guidelines. For those students on work placements (e.g. Health and Social Care), students are advised to find work placements in or around London so that your assessor is able to help you with assessment for your work placement.
