Apply for your place

Once you’ve decided on the course you are interested in, you can apply online by using our course search or browse our full-time courses on offer and click the 'Apply' button found next to your course of interest. You can also email Client Services at or by calling 020 8651 1131 to request a printable copy.

Alternatively, you can visit our Client Services team, who will be happy to help during College opening hours (Term time: Monday – Friday 08:30 – 16:30; Outside term-time: Monday – Friday 09:00 – 16:00). Client Services accept applications throughout the year on a first come, first served basis.

As part of your application, the College also requires a reference from your current school. Print a copy and ask your school to complete. Please return the Reference Request Form to Client Services prior to interview.

Information, Advice & Guidance Interview

You will then be invited to an information and advice session where we discuss every aspect of the course you have chosen. This is an important opportunity for you to make sure that this is the right course for you, and for us to fully explain the details and requirements of your course.

Your Offer

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

Adult students with appropriate qualifications are usually offered unconditional places.


You will receive an invitation to 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.

The first step to your future career

Information, advice and guidance is available at every stage of your decision making process. Please contact our Client Services team for help and assistance.
