Although college is about being more independent, the tutors are there for us if we need them. The tutors are really approachable and friendly."
Applicants must be over 19 and have been out of full-time education for a year. There are no formal entry requirements, but you need to attend an initial assessment (tests on numeracy, literacy and a written discussion on a given topic). This ensures the programme is at the most appropriate level for you, and it helps us to identify any support needs you may have so we can put study support into place.
You can apply for this programme online. Simply follow the link to ‘Apply now’ on your chosen programme page.
You will then be asked to register or log in to progress with your application.
As part of your application, you will be asked to provide us with your contact details, how your chosen programme fits with your future plans and if you require any extra support (for example because of a disability, medical condition, learning or language support needs).
