Next steps: enrolment

Once you've applied (and you've made sure you've received a confirmation email) you'll hear from us soon after.

We'll be in touch to book in a time for your interview, if your course requires one.

Interview

Your interview, if you need one, will be to discuss your experience, your qualifications, and to check your English & Maths skills. But it's also a good chance to for you to find out even more about your course and to be 100% sure it's right for you.

Your offer

Following your interview you’ll receive an email from us advising whether or not you’ve been offered a place.

If you’re successful your offer might be:

  • ‘Unconditional’ – in which case the next step is enrolment!
  • ‘Conditional’ – meaning you’ll have to pass an upcoming exam before we can confirm your place

If you receive a conditional offer but then don’t manage to meet the entry requirements to get on your course, speak to the course information team on 020 3667 0294. We’ll discuss your options and see if there’s another suitable course for you.

Enrolment

You'll hear from us once you've received an offer to let you know where and when to enrol.

Enrolment sessions are bookable, so you'll need to select a convenient date and time to complete the process. The earlier you attend, the more chance you have of securing a place on your chosen course. Places for next year cannot be guaranteed until you have completed the enrolment process.
