Upon receipt of application, you can expect to hear from us within two weeks. We will send you a letter confirming the conditions of your offer, which is usually based on your exam results. Please don’t worry if you don’t meet the grades required to enter onto the course you have applied for, we offer many alternative courses at different levels.

During the summer prior to you starting your course, we will send you a Student Information Pack.
