College Entry Requirements

For an advanced level programme the college requires:

  • You will need six passes at GCSE including two at Grade 6.
  • You should have passed two or more of English, Science and Maths.
  • Some advanced level courses have their own specific entry requirements. You can check the latest recommendations on our individual course guide leaflets.
  • If you have passed applied courses (eg BTEC) and also have some core GCSEs at grade A*-C we will negotiate an appropriate course, that may include BTEC programmes.

All students are recommended to submit applications before the published deadline. All applications we receive before the deadline are considered and to help inform our decision we look at:

  • each case individually
  • the suitability of chosen courses and levels of study
  • the personal statement
  • the information provided by the high school, including attendance, punctuality, conduct and application
  • a supportive reference from the high school
  • the availability of place
