How and When to Apply

Which is the right course for me?

To help you to decide it might be useful to ask yourself the following questions:

  • What are my long term career goals?
  • What are my interests?
  • What subjects do I enjoy?
  • What GCSE grades am I likely to achieve?

Discuss your options with your friends, parents/guardians, careers teachers and Inspira advisor. Make the most of attending open evenings and careers events.

If you are undecided, you can apply to both campuses.

As part of your application form, we’d like to know about your career plans and future ambitions. What are you passionate about?

It’s a good idea to chat to your parents/guardians, teachers or Inspira advisor and prepare a short paragraph to submit with your application form.

It’s really easy to complete and submit an application form online or you can alternatively request for a paper copy to be sent to you. If you have any questions about completing your form, please contact Student Services.

What happens next?

Your application will be acknowledged and an interview date provided. You will be informed of the outcome of your interview after your interview date. If successful in your first choice of course, you will be notified by letter.

If not, you will be invited back to find an alternative. Some courses will depend on your GCSE results, particularly in Maths and English, and entry requirements can be found on the course pages of our website. Our Student Services team offers impartial advice and can help you choose the course that is right for you.
