Usher will visit an east London college during his short U.K. tour this week to take part in a Q&A session and receive an honorary diploma.

The Arista star, whose current single "Burn" entered the British chart at No. 1 yesterday, will be at Newham College of Further Education to take part in a question and answer session with more than 200 young people from schools and colleges in the area.

The facility is poised to launch "Get On Track," a new addition to its Newham College Access Diploma (NewCAD), aimed at inspiring young people back into education, especially those who left school with few, if any, qualifications.

Usher will also receive an honorary NewCAD diploma for achievements in music from college principle and chief executive Martin Tolhurst.

The artist plays U.K. shows at Nottingham Arena on Wednesday (7) and London's Wembley Arena on Thursday and Friday.
