Applying to College can be a scary process, but we've got you covered - Starting College
We’ve put together a guide on how to apply to College. Just follow our simple steps and you’ll have submitted your application in no time.
We recommend that you apply as early as possible as some programmes can become full and you don’t want to be on the waiting list!
Your application will save automatically, and you can return to it through our website by clicking on the “My Application” button.
Please don’t use your school email address when you register as we’ll be emailing you lots of information over the summer and you won’t be able to access this account.
Step 1: Choose your programme and click 'apply now’
Step 2: Register your details
Once you've registered, we'll send you an email straight away to confirm it's you, and then you'll be able to proceed with your application. Please follow the link which will take you back to continue your application.
All sections need to be fully completed before you can submit your application. Once submitted you will not be able to edit your application. If you wish to amend your application please contact our admissions department by emailing email@example.com if you need to do so.
Step 3: Student details
Please fully complete your personal details including your name, address, and contact details. It is very important to provide your personal email address and a telephone number where we can contact you. All updates including invitations to interview are sent electronically so please ensure your email address is correct and that you check your account regularly (including your “Junk” inbox!).
Step 4: Other details
Here you will be asked for other details which will help us to decide how we can best support you while you study.
Step 5: Qualifications
Please give us details of any qualifications you have already gained or, if you are still at school, please confirm the grades you have been predicted to achieve in each subject area you are studying. If you have any qualifications which are not listed, please add them in the box below “Any other qualifications that are not listed above”.
Step 6: Your personal statement
This section is one of the most important parts of your application as it helps us to make sure the programme you have chosen is the best option for you.
The following points may help you to write your statement:
- Why did you choose MidKent College?
- What are you interested in?
- Are you already employed and what do you do at work?
- Do you have any volunteering experience and how did you find it?
- What are your plans for your future after your programme has finished?
- Where would you like to be in five years' time?
- What makes this study programme different to all the others on offer?
It would also be good if we knew your career goals and aspirations!
Step 7: Your employment
You will be asked what your employment status will be before you start College, and where you work at the moment if you have a job.
Your application will then be ready to submit. Make sure all sections are completed and you have read the sections thoroughly before submitting your application.
Please ensure that you read and accept the Declaration section.
