History[edit]

Students of South London Christian College over the years have come from some 45 different nations of the world and over 1000 have graduated on completion of their studies.[1] Programmes offered over the years included full-time, part-time and distance learning from certificate to postgraduate degrees. Study areas included theology, ministerial studies, missions, Christian counselling and Christian music and worship. The vision of SLCC was: 'inspire hearts and educate minds'.

The college offered practical training and assessments which included activities such as church placements. Students also went on Israel Bible tours and international missions trips to countries such as Belgium, Moldova, Pakistan, India, Uganda, Kenya, Zambia, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Ghana and the Gambia.[2]

The college was initially registered with Department for Education and Skills (United Kingdom) (DfES) in 2005, then it was accredited in 2009 by an OfSTED-appointed organisation, Accreditation Service for International Colleges (ASIC). Following the government's 2011 guidelines for colleges to have governmental educational oversight, SLCC passed an inspection with Bridge Schools Inspectorate (BSI), which took over the role of ASIC.

In October 2012, South London Christian College ceased operating and running programmes due to financial reasons.
