Admissions Process


Come to an Open Day

We hold a number of Open Days throughout the year to give you the chance to come in and have a look around and discuss your courses and career options. You can book in (or just drop in) to one of our 2016/17 Open Events

Ways to Apply

There are 3 different ways of applying. You can tear out the application form in the Course Guide, fill it in and send it back to us. Or print off an application form from our website (or get an application form from your school or careers service). Alternatively, you can apply online Please search for the course you are interested in and click on the orange ‘Apply now’ button, then fill in your details and click submit. The application will come straight through to us.

When To Apply

The further education course deadline is 28/02/2017.   Some of our courses are very popular so it is best to apply early. We may still accept applications after the deadline, but they will not be given priority.  If you are unsure between courses, please apply and we can transfer your application if you change your mind at a later date.  
If you have any queries regarding this then please contact our Admissions department

College Admissions Process

When we receive your application, we will invite you to an Admissions Event. You can bring your parents or guardians with you. The Admissions Process can vary depending upon the course you have chosen. Your Admissions Adviser will meet you in reception and take you to the library for a guidance presentation. The course Tutor will meet you and take you to the classroom to find out more about the course and ask any questions that you may have.
There will also be an opportunity for you to speak with an Admissions Adviser about your next steps.

Offer of a Place

You will be told at the Admissions Event if you have been successful and will be given an Offer Pack with all details of the course you have been accepted onto. The offer will be either unconditional or provisional upon gaining certain grades on your current course. Do not worry if you don’t receive the grades you were expecting, we may offer you a place on a lower level course. Alternatively, if you do better than expected we may offer you a place on a higher level course.

What Next?

You will receive an invite to attend a ‘Hello College Day’ held in the first week of July where you can experience some of the course activities, meet other students and get to know the College. The Admissions Team will stay in touch with you throughout the year and invite you to an enrolment session nearer the course start date.
