Applying to study a course at College may seem daunting but we’re here to help support you in making the right choice and inform you of the options and opportunities available to you as a student.
We strongly recommend that you enrol for our advertised courses as soon as possible. This will ensure you get a place and help us assess whether we have sufficient numbers for the course to commence on the start date listed. We aim to run all of the courses advertised, however we do need a minimum number of enrolments on each class to make this possible.
The best way to join a course is to complete either the online application or enrolment form. You can find links to these on each course page. However if you would prefer to complete an application form by hand, please do so and return it to the College, or call our Information and Guidance team on 01278 441234 and they will send you one.
Please note, that some courses may require you to complete an application form first and then attend an interview before you can enrol. Depending on the type of course and start date, there may also be options to enrol/apply online, or a telephone number for joining the course.
Courses marked Apply require you to complete an application form. You can do this online via the course page or by completing the form by hand and sending it back to us. Once we have received your application we will arrange an interview with the subject tutor to ensure that the course is right for you.
