Our colleges are open for advice, guidance and drop-in enrolment in August and September.

What is IAG and who is it for?

Whether you're undecided about your future, or your exam results have turned out differently to how you'd expected (for better or worse, it does happen!), it's not too late to come and speak to us about your future.

Our Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) sessions make joining us this September easy!

Our official admissions may have closed, but these short advice sessions at each of our colleges can help you get a place on a subject pathway in time for September.

How to book your advice session

Booking a session with one of our advisors is easy. These sessions are really busy and we don't want you to miss out, so we recommend booking a slot to discuss your options with us. We also offer drop-in sessions for those that can't book in advance, so read on for more information.

Simply click the button below which will take you to our online booking area and follow the instructions on the page. You will need to:

  • Select the college you're interested in studying at
  • Choose the subject area that you're interested in
  • Pick a date and time that suits you
  • Set up your account to confirm your booking

You can make multiple bookings to discuss different subjects. Just repeat the process.

Once your appointments are confirmed you can log back in at any time to manage or cancel them. You can also adjust your settings to receive reminders for upcoming appointments.

How to prepare for your appointment

Follow our top tips to make sure you make the most of your visit.

  1. Have a look at our prospectus, online course search and apprenticeship vacancies to see what programmes and subject areas are available to you.
  2. Shortlist the areas that you are most interested in and best suit your career goals.
  3. Prepare a few questions to ask the team, for example: What modules will I study? What future job could I get? What facilities will I have access to on campus? How will I be assessed?
  4. Smile and be yourself!
