On the basis of all the information available, we decide to make offers of places to about 100 students each year out of the 500-600 who apply. Offers are usually made in January each year. Candidates may receive:

A conditional offer

If you receive an offer but have not yet completed all your current qualifications, your offer will be conditional on your achieving certain results (pre-qualification entry). Your place will be confirmed when you have completed your qualifications and if you have satisfied the conditions of the offer.

  • A Level: requirements range from AAA to A*A*A, depending on the course applied for. Select your course and look under the ‘entrance requirements’ tab for details including subject specific requirements
  • International Baccalaureate: a total of at least 40 points (including core points) is required, with scores of 7 in two subjects at the Higher Level, unless otherwise stated in the entrance requirements for your course
  • Other UK qualifications (information available here)
  • International qualifications (information available here)

If you have already met part or all of your conditions, you will be required to provide proof of these qualifications, in the form of transcripts or certificates, to the Admissions Officer in order for your place to be confirmed. Details will be included in your offer letter.

Please note that any offer may also include a requirement for evidence of proficiency in the English language.

An unconditional offer

If you have already completed your qualifications then you may be given an unconditional offer. This is for candidates whose examination results are already known and the results have been verified by the College (post-qualification entry). This means that there are no further academic conditions for you to meet, and your place is guaranteed so long as you complete all the necessary administrative steps.
