What happens next
If you're a school leaver, you'll have an informal interview before starting your course.
Otherwise you'll be invited to enrol; check our enrolment page for information about where to go and what to bring.
School leaver interviews
Under normal conditions we would invite you into College for an informal interview.
Currently, we arrange for a tutor to contact you via telephone to discuss your application.
The interview will give you the opportunity to discuss your course, and to make sure you are on the right career path.
