Adult & University Courses

During current working circumstances we are unable to offer our applying students the opportunity to attend an interview in college, if their chosen course requires one.  Our admissions team will therefore contact you when we receive your application and will offer you a place on your chosen course by e-mail, subject to normal course entry requirements being met. For some courses, you will be invited to a telephone interview or Zoom (for PGCE applicants).

When completing application forms, please complete the form fully offering as much detail as possible. This will allow for quicker processing and an offer being made. For more information please click here for our Frequently Asked Questions.

Please note: We are sorry but due to the ongoing  COVID-19  situation, we are no longer able to process any Postal Applications relating to Adult Courses. Applications can still however be made by emailing them to, or you can apply below through our online application form.
