Admissions Information

Study Programmes
  • You should choose no more than two predominantly practical/coursework based A Levels. If you want to combine three practical/coursework based A Levels, you should seriously consider an Extended Diploma course
  • There may be exceptional circumstances where we can review the entry criteria for an individual student. This is normally when other supporting subjects meet the required entry criteria

The entry criteria listed are accurate at the time of the publication of the prospectus. They are, however, subject to revision as information emerges from the Department for Education or Awarding Bodies regarding the curriculum going forward. All changes will be notified via the college website.

All level 2 and 3 subjects will be assessed by a combination of external examination and coursework submissions.
