If things haven’t turned out as well as you had hoped and your grades are LOWER than expected please come along anyway and we will help you to explore the options open to you.


When to apply?

AUTUMN – Priority boarding

Early applications are advised. We are a successful college and many of our courses have more applicants than there are places. To secure a place, we ask you to return your completed application by the 15th January. Everyone who applies by this date is guaranteed an interview.


SPRING – Last call

Applications after the January deadline will still be accepted, but we cannot guarantee an interview if your chosen course is full.


SUMMER – Gate closing

Even after all the places on a course have been accepted we may still be able to offer you a place on a waiting list. Every year some applicants are not able to take up their place on a course and their places become available in August. If you accept a place on a waiting list it is important that you have an alternative plan as well, because we cannot guarantee that everyone on the list will get a place.
