Making your application

Students from outside the EEA and Switzerland are able to apply for courses at HNC level and above. You can find details of these courses here.

You can apply using the form below. We recommend that you submit your application as early as possible and at least by the end of May if you plan to start college in August.

What happens after you’ve applied?

Please note that all correspondence from the College in relation to international applications will be conducted via email. We’ll get back to you as soon as we can about your application.

  • Successful applicants will receive a Conditional Offer via email, which will give conditions on academic matters, tuition fees, finance, methods of payment and our refund policy.
  • Your Conditional Offer will contain details of how to make arrangements for an interview with staff from the College. Please note that all international students will be interviewed as part of the application process.
  • Applicants who are successful at interview and who have met all the other conditions set out in their Conditional Offer letter will be invited to pay their course fees.
  • Once full payment of the first year course fee has been received by the College and all conditions of the offer have been met, a Confirmation of Acceptance of Studies (known as a CAS) and an Unconditional Offer will be issued.
