The entry requirements depend on which level your son or daughter wishes to study at. It is recommended that you consider all level options carefully, to give your son or daughter the best chance of achieving their qualification. To view the entry requirements, please click here.

If this is the case, our main advice is to attend the assigned enrolment slot where we can discuss possible options with your son or daughter. We would like to reassure you that they will not be disadvantaged in any way by having to wait for your enrolment slot, as all decisions about possible changes to study programme, for a variety of reasons, including not meeting the entry criteria for all/elements of it, are not made until the end of the standard enrolment period. This year’s review period will end on 1st September and by this point, we will have contacted any prospective student who attended their enrolment slot and requested a revision to their programme of study.

In the first instance, they should discuss this with their school careers advisor. When they have a college interview, our interviewers will be happy to discuss this fully with them.

We have a huge variety of courses on offer, including Sport, Heath and Social Care, Humanities, Sciences and Art and Design. To see a full course list, please click here.
