Full-time courses

The easiest way to apply for a full time course is to apply online! Simply search for the course you’re interested in and click the ‘apply now’ button. Just go to our course page to find the course you want to apply for. The form takes just 5 minutes to complete, and is the quickest and easiest way to apply.

If you’d like a paper version of the application form then please use the form in the back of our prospectus, if you don’t have a prospectus you can find it online and free to download here.

Once we receive your application, we’ll invite you to attend a Course Introduction Meeting. Once you have attended, you will receive an offer, which will be conditional on the outcomes of the following:

  • Assessment (if applicable)
  • Previous qualifications
  • References

You’ll then be invited to attend one of our enrolment sessions towards the end of August. Please note, to guarantee your place and find out when your start date will be, you must visit the College to enrol.

Part-time courses

Please contact the Student Services team on 01582 569 569 to discuss applications for part-time courses. Many of our part-time courses don’t require an interview or assessment, so you may be able to enrol online or by phone.
