Receiving Your Application
We aim to let you know that we have received your application and provide you with an interview date within 10 working days. If you haven’t heard from us within 14 days please contact us on one of the numbers below (see Admissions Contact Details).
Interview and Initial Assessment
Once we have received your application we will ask you to come into the College for an interview. The interview is really informal and a chance for you to chat about your options and goals with one of our advisors. It’s a good chance to find out more about being a student at the College. You are more than welcome to bring your parents or carer to the interview.
You may also be asked to complete an online BKSB Initial Assessment before you attend your interview, further details will be sent to you in the post.
Sometime after your interview you will be invited to an Applicant Day – these events are hosted each term.
You may have already visited us at an Open Day, but Applicant Days are different – they’re exclusive days for applicants only, giving you the chance to experience your course before you start studying here. You'll also get an impression of what it feels like to be a part of our vibrant student community.
You’ll meet the teaching team for your chosen course, as well as other applicants. It’s a great way to make new friends before your course starts, tour our facilities and ask any last minute questions about life at the College
Enrolment will take place during August. We will send you a letter inviting you in to enrol. Please remember to bring your exam results and a copy of your identification with you. Most of all we look forward to meeting you.
