How do I apply?
If you are applying for a part-time course or an apprenticeship you can apply online through the 'Choose your Course' search.
When do I apply?
Some of our courses are extremely popular so please apply as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. While there is no deadline for applications, we request that they are submitted no later than two weeks before the start of the course you wish to join to ensure we can process your details in time.
What happens next?
Once you have applied, you will be contacted by a course tutor. Usually this contact leads to the offer of a place on one of our courses. This offer may be unconditional (if you already have the appropriate qualifications and experience), or it may be conditional (and will depend on the results of any examinations you are due to take). Remember that earlier applications are more likely to guarantee a place on the course of your choice!
How do I pay for my course?
Part-time courses are free up to the age of 19. If you are aged under 19, and want to study a part-time course, you will need to meet very specific entry criteria. If you are 19 or over on August 31 prior to the start of your course, you may still be entitled to help with your fees. However, this will depend on the course and your individual circumstances.
Please see our course fee page for full details of tuition fees.
If you are liable to pay tuition fees and/or exam registration fees, please complete the fee payment form that we will send you once we have received your application. A Fee Payment Form is available to download in PDF format here.
