Guidance Counselling

Some students might experience cultural difficulties or personal problems when coming to London. At Blake Hall College we provide students with guidance counselling to help them adapt and deal with life in London. Blake Hall College also assists them with budgeting services where students can come for help to manage their finances.


Assisting with guidance to professional visa advice

Even though the College is not a registered solicitor we do provide students with the necessary information to help them apply for visa extensions. If students do not know how to fill out particular documents or schedule appointments for visa extensions, we assist them in doing so.
 

Student Discounts

There are many discounts that students can qualify for in London. Blake Hall College ensures that all students are well informed about these discounts and also assist them with applying for them. If students need any letters as proof of studies, the College (with the help of the Student Union) generate the necessary paperwork so that students can reap all the benefits that London has to offer.


Student Union

Student Union (SUBHC)

Blake Hall College is proud to have a democratically elected Student Union that is a member of National Union of Students (NUS). They represent the voice of all students and participate in the strategic decision making of the College.

Finally the Activities and Sports Officer organises many social, cultural and sporting events throughout the year in which all students are encouraged to participate.
 
Elections are held annually and all students are encouraged to actively take part by nominating themselves for positions, joining a campaign team and voting for their selected candidates.
The Student Union at Blake Hall College endeavours to ensure that students take full advantage of the wealth of opportunities that are made available to them. They assist with the enhancement of student life and provide support for students over a wide range of areas. SUBHC helps to provide a friendly atmosphere for incoming international students and they promote their clubs and societies to the best of their ability. Most of all the Student Union wants to help all students to have a fun, enjoyable and successful experience at Blake Hall College.
