We welcome applications from all students regardless of gender, sexual identity, ethnic origin, religion or disability.
If you are studying at one of our partner schools you will be given priority provided that you meet the application deadline date (31st January 2013) and entry requirements.
If you are not from a partner school you are advised to apply by the deadline, as each year, the college is considerably oversubscribed. Your application will be considered on an individual basis, subject to availability of places.
Please note: In the event that either the college or a particular course is oversubscribed, you may be placed on a Waiting List. Late applications will only be considered if there are sufficient places available.
