We’re delighted you’re interested in applying for a course with us
Step 1 - your application
• Search for a course/apprenticeship or browse our list of courses/apprenticeships to find one that you would like to apply for.
• Click on the course/apprenticeship you want to apply for.
• Click the apply button at the bottom of the course page
• Complete the application form and click submit!
If you are applying for a full-time course or an apprenticeship you should apply for a place between 1 October and 31 March. Applications received after this date will still be considered but course places will be limited. Don't worry if you're unsure of which course you want to study, you can apply for multiple courses on the same application form.
If you are applying for a part-time course you may be able to enrol and pay for the course online by clicking ‘buy now’ on the course that you’d like to enrol onto. If you can’t enrol and pay online it might be because you require an interview (see Step 2).
Step 2 - your interview
Faculty staff will be in touch with you within three weeks of submitting your application. They will confirm the next steps in relation to your application to invite your for an interview where you will meet our tutors and talk to them about the course/apprenticeship to make sure it’s right for you. You’ll then be offered a conditional place with us subject to your GCSE results/prior qualifications.
Step 3 - confirming your place
Full-time students must confirm their place on the course. You can only do this once you have applied for your chosen course (see step 1). You can confirm your place by completing the online form, completing the paper form you were given in your interview or by calling us on 01782 254254 (Newcastle College) or 01785 223800 (Stafford College). Once you’ve accepted your place on the course, we’ll invite you to an Experience event in June where you will find out more about life at College and meet people on your course.
