DO YOU WANT TO ACCESS UNIVERSITY, CHANGE CAREER PATH, OR ADVANCE WITHIN AN EXISTING JOB?

At Richard Taunton Sixth Form College, we support adult learners wishing to study for their Maths/English GCSE or the Access to HE Diploma. To learn more about courses, entry requirements, and fees, please see our Adult Education brochure.

APPLYING

We start accepting applications in September for entry the following year. Please note that we have a limited amount of funding to cover adult study and for this reason we cannot guarantee a place to everyone who applies until we know how many applications by adults will be made.

PRE-ENROLMENT

After you have submitted your application you will be invited to a pre-enrolment interview. This will be a 1-to-1 meeting with a member of our Admissions team during which we will discuss your career goals, course selection, and any additional learning support requirements. It will take approximately 30 minutes and is preceded by a 20 minute English and/or maths assessment, if you have applied for a GCSE course. 

ENROLMENT

If you receive a conditional offer letter you will be invited to an enrolment interview. You will undertake a series of activities, prior to your 1-to-1 30 minute interview. These activities include: a review of your course entry requirement paperwork, a data check, fee payment, loan paperwork, parking passes, and ID badge set up. The whole process will take a minimum of one hour.
