Admissions Process

Admissions Process

We hope to make our admission process as straightforward for you.  Before you apply for any of our courses, students and their sponsors are strongly advised to read and familiarise themselves with the college admission policies, regulations and terms conditions.

When to Apply

There is no set time to apply as most of our courses start in September, January and April. However, we encourage potential students to apply early to avoid any disappointment as a result of not getting a place.  International applicants should also allow time to obtain a Visa.
