You can find details of these courses here. The same applies to applicants from EU/EEA or Switzerland who haven’t been granted pre-settled or settled status through the EU Settlement Scheme (EUSS).

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.

• Copies of all relevant academic documents (transcripts in addition to award certificate)
• IELTS test certificate (see English Language section)
• Copy of passport (front cover, photograph page, signature page and visa page if applicable)

When you’re applying, it’s really important that you tell about any previous periods of study in the UK.
