The Guidance Meeting is quite informal but it is important to be well prepared for it. Please make sure you view our website, read the detail for the courses you are applying for and check the entry requirements. 

This meeting is the chance for us to find out more about you and for you to ask us any questions so make a note of anything you may like to ask before you attend – you may forget on the day!

Upon a successful guidance meeting, you will receive an offer of a provisional place by e-mail. All offers are conditional on you meeting the college entry requirements and the entry requirements for the courses you are applying for.
