Our courses run from September to July. You can make an application from late September (the year before joining) onwards. We recommend that you apply by February to ensure your place on your preferred courses. If you apply after this time you may miss out on the chance to attend the New Parent Information Evening, and If you apply after June, you will miss out on our Applicant Day and we won’t be able to interview you or confirm your place until the end of August.

In the event that courses fill up, we will allocate places in order of application date. Students will lose the benefit of an early application date if they:

  • Fail to attend their interview without letting us know
  • Cannot attend enrolment at the normal time
  • Fail to respond to our communications.
