MORE INFORMATION

Interview / Special Entry Requirements
Some courses will require that you already specific entry requirements or that you attend a pre-course information session or interview. These courses are indicated throughout the printed course guide in the notes column in each of the tables. You will find more details on the requirements for these courses on the college website.

For courses that don’t require an Interview / Information Session
You should complete the enrolment form (available at the back of this guide) and submit it to the College, either in person or by post, along with the correct fee. If you are employed and your employer has agreed to pay the fee, evidence of this must be shown at enrolment. Suitable evidence includes a signed letter from your employer or their signature and company stamp on the back of the enrolment form. Your place will only be secure when the fee has been paid. On enrolment you will be given a receipt which will show the amount paid, the start date, day, time and location of your course.

The College will endeavour to run all courses as advertised. However, we reserve the right to cancel courses which do not attract sufficient numbers. In this case students who have enrolled will be entitled to a full refund.
