We are pleased to announce that enrolment for our part time courses 2020/2021 is now live.

How to enrol

For courses requiring an interview, please select the interview request option for a call back. Following your interview you will be sent a unique link to complete your enrolment online and pay.

Need to arrange a payment plan or arrange invoicing? There are a number of bookable sessions for students requiring this at our Tycoch Campus. Just book onto payment session once you have received your unique link email confirmation. Please do not attend if you haven't booked a timeslot.

Our payment plans are 50% of the course fee at enrolment, followed by two further instalments. Instalments are available for courses over £100.

Due to Covid-19 and the associated guidelines, students can expect a blended learning approach this year. This may mean that teaching will be a combination of traditional classroom methods and online delivery.

We would like to thank you for your patience this year as we worked to finalise our part time provision for the coming year.

Don’t forget, the College also offers ongoing employability and career support available through our Better Jobs, Better Futures team.
