How to apply

To book online and pay by credit or debit card select your programme (or one of your courses) and click on the 'Book now' button. You will then be taken step by step through the booking process. 

What happens next?

Once you have completed the online booking form you will receive:

  2. An email to confirm your online payment

If you meet all of the requirements and have provided all of the relevant information your application will be processed and accepted.

If your application is incomplete (eg missing language codes or information) you will receive an email, and your application will be 'pending' until the issue is resolved.

NB: Course and room allocations will not be made while applications are pending.

Once your application has been accepted

You will receive your acceptance letter by email (including allocated courses and accommodation), along with a finance summary showing the fees paid and any outstanding balance.

NB: Liaise with your group contact if you have applied through an institution.

You will also be emailed login details for the VLE, where you can access the Student Handbook, course materials, information about your College and weekend excursions.

Please note: some emails sent from our office are occasionally redirected to junk or spam folders. Please ensure that you check these folders regularly once you have applied.
