The atmosphere is friendly and informal, whilst the enthusiasm of the teaching staff encourages a disciplined approach to study. The academic atmosphere of the College is very evident to visitors, who comment on the quiet, purposeful atmosphere that pervades the building.
At the centre of the London based College is a quiet study room which is supervised by a member of staff. This sets the academic tone. There is also a strong element of pastoral care and support that runs alongside rigorous academic monitoring: personal tutors get to know their tutees very well and are able to help them in a variety of ways when issues arise. The ethos of the College builds confidence by bringing students together who all have the same goal in mind, teaching them in small groups, encouraging a dedication to hard work and giving guidance throughout, so that each student can achieve the highest results of which he or she is capable.
