Course Consultation Meeting.

For applicants in category 1 this session is an opportunity to find out more about the college and the courses available. Applicants will be asked to bring with them evidence of their current academic progress. This will ensure that appropriate advice and guidance can be given about courses which match the applicant’s academic ability and career plans.

Our offer of a place is not subject to certain GCSE results however each subject has individual entry criteria. Please check our Subject Entry Criteria.
