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.

Interview.

For applicants in category 2 this interview is an opportunity to discuss courses available and their application in general. This interview will be used together with their application form to decide whether the applicant will be offered a place.

Category 2 applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application by email once all the interviews have taken place.

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.
