Following your application, you will be invited to a course interview to ensure that you are suitable for the course and understand our expectations around attendance, study and progression. You will also have the opportunity to meet the teaching team from the subject area you are applying for and ask any questions you may have.

Your English and maths skills may also be assessed to identify any additional support you may require to be successful on the course. With this there will also be an opportunity for you to disclose any additional learning support that you may require.

Depending on the type of support you may require, you may be invited to meet a member of the Additional Learning Support team.

If your course interview has a successful outcome, you will receive either an offer or a conditional offer for a place on the course with us. A conditional offer may be subject to your exam results and references.

You only need to apply once and complete one application form, even if you are applying for more than one course.
