How the Application Process Works

FIND YOUR COURSE AND APPLY ONLINE.

When you've found the perfect course you want to study you can apply directly online.

STAGE 2 FORM

Once we've received your application you will receive an email with a form to complete. This is called your Stage 2 Form. Fill this out and send it back to us.

DECISION OF OFFER

Once we’ve received your Stage 2 Form your application will be passed to the curriculum teams. At this stage the curriculum teams might want to speak to you about your application.

If the curriculum teams want to speak to you about your application before giving you an offer then they may contact you by phone from a number that you don’t recognise (likely to be an 01978 number). Please keep an eye on your phone and answer that call so we can progress your application quickly.

If your application is successful you will receive an offer via email. This means that you have a place on a course with us if you meet the entry requirements.

NEW STUDENT DAY

Attend your New Student Day event in June to get a taster of the college and your course. Don't worry, we will email you and text you about arrangements for this day.

CONFIRM YOUR PLACE

You will receive an email asking you to Confirm Your Place online on GCSE Results Day in August. Doing this means we know you want your place on the course and that you will be joining us in September.

START DATE INFO

You will receive an email with your start date and other useful information. Please note that you will only receive this information after you have confirmed your place.
