Do I still need to report to college if I am off ill?

Yes, you will need to phone the campus office in the normal way. 

I have applied for a course, what happens now?

Please don’t worry, we are continuing to deal with all College applications and we will be in touch to discuss your place shortly.

Will interviews be going ahead for courses starting in September?

Yes and if we cannot do face to face interviews, we will look at alternative options to make sure you still get your place at College secured.

We look forward to welcoming you in the next academic year.
