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 Advisor will meet you in reception and take you to the course area where you will meet with the tutor, look round the facilities and find out more about the course and ask any questions that you may have.

There will also be an opportunity for you to speak with an Admissions Advisor about your next steps.

For the Learner Admission Policy and Procedure please click HERE.

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 provisional 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.

What's next?

Dependent on the course applicants will be invited to attend a ‘Hello College Day’ held in the first week of 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.

Any Questions?

If you are not sure which course is right for you or which level, or for anything else related to applying for our courses, give the Admissions Team a quick call and we will be able to point you in the right direction.
