As we approach the summer break, we are unfortunately no longer able to complete interviews with applicants ahead of enrolment. Please note, all applications received from 1 July 2020 onwards will be classed as “Late Applications” and will be held on a waiting list until enrolment, which takes place towards the end of August (after GCSE Results are known). We will endeavour to invite late applicants in for an interview during our late enrolment period at the end of August, though you should be aware that, whilst we will aim to meet your preferences, some courses or course combinations may no longer be available at that stage.
As we are getting a lot of queries about making an application and enrolling at the College this September, we have created a Frequently Asked Questions page. Please see if the answer to your question is here before contacting the Admissions Office, as we are experiencing very high volumes of emails at present and this is resulting in a delay in our responses.
Students wanting to change their subjects for this September are advised to fill in the online Subject Change Request Form. This request will be sent to the Admissions Office, who will make a note of the request on Tyber. Changes will not be confirmed until enrolment at the end of August.
Calling all Year 11 students! Our teachers have put forward some brilliant resources related to all our A level, BTEC and CACHE courses to help students bridge the gap between GCSE and advanced level study. It includes suggested reading, podcasts, videos and online activities to help ensure students are ready to start their studies with us this September. None of it is compulsory, but we hope it will keep students academically stimulated during this time of school closure and we really think it will help prepare you for the next stage of your education.
There are links to lots more useful information below. We advise students to attend an open day before they make an application and to read our course information so that they can ensure they are applying for the courses that are right for them. With this in mind, the following links may be useful:
When we get your application, if it looks like you will meet our entry requirements, we will invite you into College for an interview. Don’t worry about the interview – it’s nothing to be scared of. To help you prepare for it, read our Interview Guidance leaflet.
For those students from outside the UK, we have a Guide to Applying for Overseas Students.
All our courses are offered subject to there being sufficient numbers of applications for financial and educational viability. This cannot be confirmed prior to enrolment in August/September. When courses are over-subscribed, priority will be given to applicants from our partner schools (Cockshut Hill, Hall Green, Langley, Light Hall, Lode Heath, Lyndon, Ninestiles and Yardleys Schools), then to applicants who live within the Borough of Solihull.
