City College Brighton and Hove was found to be “good” during its inspection by the official watchdog Ofsted last month.
Inspectors provided feedback at the end of their two-day inspection and – once their findings have been moderated – the official rating and report will be published.
The full inspection report is expected to be made public within weeks.
The college is likely to be told that teaching, learning and assessment were of a high quality and that the student experience is also of a high standard.
The college said: “We’ve had some feedback which was positive but we won’t find out for four to five weeks how we’ve been graded.”
Ofsted will not confirm in advance of the official publication of its report how it has rated the further education college.
It has its main campus in Pelham Street, Brighton, and its City College East campus in Wilson Avenue, Whitehawk.
A consultation is currently under way about a proposed merger with Northbrook College in Worthing.
