How to Apply

The following information provides you with an overview of the application steps to apply for your chosen degree or diploma at a local teaching centre: 

  1. Contact your local teaching centre
    You will need to confirm you can enrol on your desired programme with the local teaching centre you wish to study through. Once this is confirmed, the teaching centre will provide you with a unique access code that you can use during the online application process.
  2. Submit your online application form and application fee 
    You can submit your application even if you are waiting to sit an examination or receive your results. We can begin to process your application without all the evidence, although your offer will be conditional upon you providing all the necessary documentation. 
  3. Submit your documentary evidence 
    This can be done online when submitting your application or at a later stage. See further information on supplying evidence. Please do not send original documents. 
  4. Wait for your application to be assessed 
    Once we have reviewed your application, we will contact you by email to advise of the outcome of your application. If you meet our entrance requirements and have provided all the required documents then we will send you an offer letter. 

    Please Note:
    If your application is not approved during the first review process this may mean we require additional information before we can confirm you meet our entrance requirements. We may also let you know that we have referred your application to the Admissions Panel. Alternatively, we may advise that we cannot accept you using your current qualifications and let you know if there are any other qualifications you can take to meet our entrance requirements. 
  5. Accept your offer and complete your online registration 
    Once you have received your offer letter, you will be invited to complete your online registration. We will explain how to do this in the offer letter. Once you register, you will be given access to our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) and we will post your additional study materials so you can get started!
