Apply online
Select the application form as relevant:

Your progress through the form can be saved as you go, and returned to later if you need to. Please take care to complete all required sections and upload your passport-sized photograph. Once you have submitted your application form, you will receive confirmation of receipt from our Admissions department.

Your interview
Once the application form has been processed and suitable references have been received, the college will contact you to arrange an interview date. You’ll be required* to complete an online DBS form before the interview, and bring requested ID documentation plus evidence of your academic qualifications with you to the interview. Normally you will be notified of the result of your application to study within one week of your interview. In order to secure your registration after you’re offered a place on your choice of programme, you’ll be required to pay the registration fee and the cost of the DBS check (this is a one-off payment).
