How to Apply

Our Client Services team is always happy to help you through the application process, if you need advice or guidance please call 020 8651 1131 or email

Choose your Course

First think about your personal ambitions, your abilities and your preferences. Have a good look through our full time courses or our prospectus and see what’s on offer. If you currently study in a Croydon school, you should also consult the Croydon Post 16 Prospectus which your school should provide you with.

Visit the College

Attend an Open Event to see the facilities, meet staff members and students and ask any questions that you may have. We recommend that all applicants attend one of our Open Events.

Apply for your Place

Once you’ve found your course, fill in an online application. All applications are acknowledged within 5 working days of receipt and interviews are offered within 20 working days of receipt. You are advised to put in an early application to secure your place and avoid disappointment.

Admissions Interview

Once you have applied you will then be invited in to JRC for an Admissions Interview where we will discuss every aspect of the course you have chosen. This is an important opportunity to make sure that this is the right course for you and for us to fully explain the details and requirements of your course.

The Offer

If you have a successful interview you will be offered a conditional place which will be confirmed at enrolment when you provide your exams results.


You will be invited to come and enrol at the College in the summer. If you didn’t do as well as you hoped in your school exams – don’t panic! We will work to offer you a more appropriate course, often leading to your first choice at a later date. If you did better that you expected, we will help you to progress directly on to a higher level.
