University partnerships

As a University Centre Croydon (UCC) student, you reap all the benefits of our small class sizes, individual attention and a convenient town-centre location, but your degree will be awarded by the University of Sussex, one of the best and most highly respected universities in the UK.

The Times Higher Education World League Tables 2014-15 place Sussex University:

  • 14th in the UK
  • 43rd in Europe
  • 111th in the world

Our partnership with University of Sussex works so well because the University shares our ambition to make university education available to all who can achieve its exacting standards - for example, students who may be the first in their families to study for a degree or those from ethnic backgrounds who are under-represented in our universities.

We wholeheartedly endorse the words of Clare Mackie, Pro-Vice Chancellor at Sussex University at our graduation ceremony this year: ''As the late Nelson Mandela said “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”. We hope that the educational journey you have embarked upon at Croydon will enable you to change your world for the better and to flourish in the times ahead.”

For students destined for a career in the legal profession, we offer a Law Degree which is validated by London Metropolitan University, and some of our other UCC programmes are accredited by CIPD, City & Guilds and Edexcel.
