You can also apply online.

Application process

We will invite you in for an interview where you will hear more about what's involved with studying at the College. The interview will give you the chance to meet our tutors and find out more about your course. We will aim to offer you a place on the day of your interview and we ask you to accept the offer as soon as you can so we know when you've made a decision to join us.


When you enrol, you will become a fully-registered student of the College. Enrolment takes place just before you start your course. At this stage, you will need to provide proof of identification and of your qualifications. You will receive a Learning Agreement when you enrol that contains details of the course you have joined.

Course fees

There may be something to pay depending on your age, the type of course you are joining and your personal circumstances. You may need to pay for special materials, protective clothing, kits or visits whatever your age or circumstances. We will tell you what you will need to pay before you enrol. To find out more go to the cost of coming to college.

Student ID card

Your ID card will be issued once you have signed your Learning Agreement and paid any fees. You must carry this card at all times on college premises and show it when requested by a member of staff.
