Full details of all of our courses can be found here.
You can apply online through the 'Choose your Course' search or download and complete a paper application form. Please return to the address on the back of the application form.
Places on some courses are limited, so you are advised to submit your application as soon as possible. You can, however, apply for a place at any time up to the start of your chosen course* (courses usually start in September).
*UCAS deadlines apply for a number of our Higher Education courses. Remember, places are limited, so apply as soon as you can!
Admissions staff will process your application and will arrange an interview with either a specialist course tutor or a Careers Guidance Adviser (depending on your needs and previous qualifications).
You will usually have an interview with the tutor for your chosen course. You may be asked to bring examples of your work to the interview. Depending on the course you are applying for, you may also be asked to take a test as part of the interview process.
If you do well in your interview you will usually be offered a place on one of our courses. This offer may be unconditional (if you already have the right qualifications and experience), or it may be conditional (and will depend on the results of any examinations you are due to take). The offer will be confirmed in writing. Please note, only at this stage will a place be reserved for you.
Once your place has been reserved, we will send further details, of when and where you should enrol. As a guideline, this is normally in late August.
In early September, you will follow an induction programme. This is usually when you will find out about College facilities, meet staff and other students and be given details of your programme of study.
Full-time further education courses are free up to the age of 19. If you are 19 or over on August 31, 2014, you may still be entitled to help with your fees (for full-time courses starting in September 2014). However, this will depend on the course and your individual circumstances.
See our course fees page for details of tuition fees.
