Applying to any South London College Course is simple. So too is the admissions process.
Step 1 - Applying
First you must complete an application form as the first step of the application process. Once you have decided on the course that you wish to study, you simply complete the application form online or fill it out manually by printing a hard copy from the College website and return it to the College - together with two passport-sized photographs and copies of all or your latest educational qualifications for evaluation by the Application Review Committee. Please check that you meet the Entry Requirements of the course you are applying for.
Unless specified in the course details, there is no official closing date for applications. However, you are recommended to apply early enough to reserve your place at College. Once you have completed one of these applications, you should send us your supporting
Step 2 - Receiving an Offer
Once we have received your application and supporting documents, our Admissions department will review your application and, provided that you meet the entry criteria of the course that you have applied for, we will give you a conditional offer by email and/or letter. You can expect to receive a decision on your application within 48 hours of us receiving your application.
Step 3 - Accepting the Offer
In order to accept an offer from the College, students will be required to pay part of their tuition fees ‘up front’, as explained in the conditional offer email/letter. Students who pay the entirety of their tuition fees in advance may be eligible to receive some discount of up to 10% (terms and conditions apply). Once we receive the tuition fees, we will issue a confirmation of payment to you and then you will be required to come to the college with your original certificates and proof of ID (e.g. passport/birth certificate) to complete your enrolment.
We request that we are provided with notification and relevant information of any payments made in our favour. If the payment was made directly into our account, you must confirm the deposit by giving us the following details:
- Date the payment was made.
- The value of the payment.
- The address of the bank from which the deposit was made.
- The sort code of the bank from which the deposit was made.
The payment verification process would be greatly accelerated if you could send a copy or receipt of your payment by post, fax or by scan and e-mail.
Step 4 - Accommodation
If you would like the College to arrange accommodation for you for the duration of your studies, please remember to inform us of your requirements no less than two weeks in advance of the start of your course.
Step 6 - Final Registration
You are advised to come to the college at least a week before your course commencement date to complete your enrolment formalities. Please bring your original certificates and proof of ID (e.g. passport/birth certificate) with you. Be advised that you will need to sign an instalment plan agreement for the balance of your tuition fees before the commencement of your course. Your college ID card and proof of enrolment will be processed upon your enrolment. If you are an international student and your student visa needs to be extended for the period of study, please bring a fully completed FLR(S) form (which can be downloaded from the Home Office website) along with your supporting documents.
Your college ID card and proof of enrolment will be processed upon your enrolment. The first week will be the induction week and the first day of your course start day will be the induction day. The final time-table will usually be distributed on the induction day.
