We’re delighted you’re thinking about making an application to join us on a higher level programme. In order to give yourself time to apply for a Student Loan from the Student Loans Company to cover the fees of the course on which you want to study, it is best to apply as early as possible.

It's easy to apply for an HNC or HND at Northampton College.

  • You can apply online by going to your chosen course on the website. This will take you to the higher education application form.

  • If you are currently studying on a level 3 programme at the college and know that you want to continue studying with us by progressing to an HNC or HND you can apply online or using the standard forms available from the Enrolment Centre or at the back of the prospectus.  

  • If you wish to apply for a part-time University of Warwick Initial Teacher Training course or a Higher Level Apprenticeship you can apply through the Northampton College application process.

If you have any questions please contact our Enrolment team on 0300 123 2344 or via email and we’ll be happy to advise you.

Once you have applied we will make contact with you, either to invite you for interview or to make you an offer. We will also offer you the chance to come in and visit the College to enable you to learn more about what is involved in studying at a higher education level at Northampton College. The visit will give you the opportunity to meet staff and current students and to see our facilities and resources and help you in your decision-making.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) advice for applicants

As you will be aware, there has been massive disruption to students taking A Levels and completing BTEC qualifications this summer as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, and the exams regulator Ofqual is rapidly developing a fair way to issue grades which should provide reassurance to students, particularly those planning to progress to higher education.

For this reason all universities and higher education providers have been told to stop making offers of places on higher education programmes for two weeks in order to enable Ofqual to complete this work and ensure that all applicants can be treated fairly and equably and make their decisions based on the best information.

If you have recently applied for an HNC or HND at Northampton College and you have not received your offer yet, please do not worry. We will be writing to you to make you an offer on your chosen course as soon as we are able to do so.
