The application process
You can apply online through our website or phone us on 020 8208 5000 and request an application form. Application forms are also available from our Kings Cross Centre. You will be required to attend an interview with the Course Team Leader as part of the application process and they will be able to answer any questions you have about the course and the College. You may also be required to undertake an initial assessment in English and maths to support your application. If you do need to undertake an assessment please do not worry; it is not a test and therefore you can’t fail it. The assessment simply provides us with an indication of your current level of English and maths which helps us to make sure you are on the right course at the right level. Once you have had your interview you will usually receive an offer which is our commitment to you studying at the College. If your offer is conditional based on you achieving specific qualifications we would need to see copies of these before we are able to complete your enrolment.
What support is available?
Our qualified tutors will support and guide you in the classrooms/workshops and through tutorials as they help you to develop the skills and techniques required in industry. Learning Support is also available for those with learning difficulties/disabilities, please let us know on application if you require this service.
What facilities and resources are available?
The Kings Cross Centre is a 10 minute walk from Kings Cross St. Pancras station and the range of local food outlets in this area. A range of snacks are available through vending machines. The college has two LRCs (Learning Resource Centres) available at our Willesden and Wembley Centres. Access to resources from these LRCs are available on request at the Kings Cross Centre.
What else should I know?
Annually we take part in a range of national and regional competitions in a wide range of subject areas for those keen to show off the skills they have gained on their courses. Taking part gives you the opportunity to display your skills, build confidence and meet employers from industry looking for new recruits. Every year our students bring back a range of trophies and medals. Please check with your tutor as courses must be at a certain level to enter
