YOUR STEPS TO COLLEGE
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 at www.calderdale.ac.uk 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
Some of our courses are very popular so it is best to apply early, but don’t worry if you apply late. We accept applications throughout the year and we will try our best to find a course for you.
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 interviewing room. There will be tours of the College and refreshments available; 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 conditional 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.
You will receive an invite to attend a ‘Hello College Day’ held in late June/early 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.
