Already Applied?

If you have already applied, our Student Services team will write to you to invite you along to this Open Evening and send you a text reminder nearer the time.

It is essential that you attend so that we can guarantee your place and make sure the course is the right one and right level for you. We can also discuss any extra support you may need.

On the evening you will be seen by the course lecturer for an informal interview and will be given specific information about your chosen subject. This is a great chance for you to ask questions about the course and college life in general.
