Step-By-Step: How To Apply

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.

Applying to join the College could not be easier. Here is a step-by-step guide to the application process.

1

Step One
  1. Apply online via our bespoke information portal Tyber. You will be asked to set up an account first, which means you can log in at any time and check the status of your application. Please ensure you check this and your email regularly, as this is how we will communicate with you.

2

Step Two

We will send you confirmation that your application has been received within two weeks.

3

Step Three

We will contact your school for a reference.

4

Step Four

If your application indicates you will meet our entry criteria, we will email you to invite you to an interview. At the interview we will discuss your application and your subject choices. Interviews are allocated on a ‘first come first served’ basis, so please do not worry if there is a delay in arranging your appointment. Missed interviews are not routinely rescheduled unless students get in touch to explain their absence and re-arrange it.

Step Five

All being well, we will make you a written offer of a place at the College. We will ask you to confirm acceptance of the offer, which you can do by logging into your account on Tyber.

6

Step Six

You will be invited to attend Welcome to College Day in the summer, where you can get a taste of College life. If you wish to enrol at the College it is essential you attend this event and failure to attend can put your place at risk.

7

Step Seven

We will write to you over the summer with details about enrolment, which will take place after GCSE results are known. It is important that you attend on the date and time you have been given and bring evidence of all GCSE/level 2 results, including those qualifications taken early.

8

Step Eight

After enrolment, you will have an induction day and then your studies can start. Attendance at the first week of lessons and evidence of achieving our entry criteria before the end of the first full week of teaching are both required in order for your enrolment to be complete.
