Pre-degree applications

FE courses

How to apply

Please apply directly to us using the individual online application form for your chosen pre-degree course. You'll find this on the specific course information page. 

When to apply - UK/EU students

We encourage you to apply between December and March as this is when most of our Applicant Days take place. Applying by the end of March will also give you plenty of time to prepare for your studies. Applications will still be accepted for consideration after 31 March deadline.

When to apply - international students

We accept applications from international students throughout the year. There’s no set deadline but we encourage you to apply by 31 March so you have enough time to organise your student visa and accommodation if you need them.

What happens next?

When we get your application we’ll send you an email with your login details for the applicant portal. This is where you'll access all the information you'll need through your applicant journey.  

The selection process

If you live in the UK, we'll invite you to an Applicant Day for your chosen course(s). This is a great opportunity for you to showcase your talent in a relaxed environment and to ask us any questions you have about your course. During the Applicant Day, you'll attend an interview with a member of the course team. The course team will also want to look at your portfolio of work, so please remember to bring this with you. You can discover more about creating your portfolio on each individual course page.

If you live outside of the UK, or are unable to attend your Applicant Day, we'll ask you to send us your portfolio of work. You can do this using the 'portfolio upload task' on the applicant portal.

We’ll send you more details through the applicant portal after we've received your application.
