Your Offer

Once you’ve attended your interview we will try and confirm the offer of a place within five working days. On some occasions we may need more information before we can confirm a place so it may take longer.

How will I know if I’ve been offered a place?

We will confirm your offer by letter, usually within 7 working days of your interview. Offers are usually unconditional or conditional.

  • Unconditional Offer 

If you are offered an unconditional place this means that we have all the information we need and you have a definite place on the course. Your letter will confirm if the offer is unconditional.

  • Conditional Offer 

A conditional offer means there are certain conditions you need to meet. For example, your offer may be conditional on GCSEs passes or other qualifications, a satisfactory reference or school report. Students on some of our courses are also required to have a satisfactory Disclosure and Barring Service check as part of their offer. Your offer letter will list the conditions of your offer.

What happens if I am not offered a place?

There are occasions when we are unable to offer a place and we will contact you by letter to confirm this. There can be a variety of reasons for this and we are happy to provide feedback. We can also put you in contact with our careers staff who can offer careers advice and discuss other options with you.

What happens after I receive my offer?

When you receive your offer letter, please make sure you read it through and keep it in a safe place. You may need to refer to it again. You will need to decide whether or not you want to accept this offer. You letter will show a web address which you will need to access to confirm whether or not you wish to accept, decline or defer the offer. We may give you a time limit to do this.

Do I need to let you know when I receive my GCSE results?

Our enrolment period begins on the same day as the GCSE results are published. You will be asked to bring your results with you when you enrol. Please note that we can’t accept results by telephone. You will need to bring your result slips or certificates with you.

How will I know when to enrol?

We will send you a letter in July to confirm your enrolment date and time. Enrolments take place at the end of August. You will also be invited to a welcome event for your course to get information about your enrolment and any uniform or equipment you need. Welcome events usually take place in July.
