Any other questions?

Where is the TEDI-London campus?

TEDI-London is based in Canada Water, an up-and-coming area of south-east London that has benefitted from a £4 billion investment. It’s well served by public transport, including the London Underground, and is close to the River Thames.

What is there to do in London? 

It’s impossible to be bored in London. As the UK’s capital city, it’s full of museums, theatres, shops, cafés, bars and more! 

Is TEDI-London UKVI-approved and does it have degree-awarding powers?

TEDI-London has the right to sponsor students on Student Visas, and it’s looking to gain status as a sponsor with ‘a record of compliance’ with UKVI as soon as possible. This is normal and required by all new sponsoring higher education institutions in the UK. 

During this period, sponsored international students are unable to work in the UK whilst studying.  

In addition, TEDI-London already has new degree-awarding powers from the Office for Students (OfS), and obtained this in September 2021 when it first opened its doors. You can see details of the Office for Students order granting TEDI-London degree-awarding powers on the OfS website.

Are TEDI-London’s degrees industry accredited?

TEDI-London’s degrees are designed to meet the requirements of both the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Institution of Engineering Designers (IED). TEDI-London can apply for accreditation once it has students in their final year of study (from September 2023), and if granted, accreditation will be backdated, so all students who graduate from a TEDI-London degree will benefit.
