Failure to complete all relevant documents and sections will delay the processing of your application. 


Your application will be considered by the appropriate admissions tutor. Assessment normally takes place in the form of an interview and you will be sent relevant details if appropriate. Once you have been accepted on to the course will you be sent an offer letter by the College with further instructions.


We work in partnership with the University of Brighton and so you will need to enrol at the College and at the University. You will need to enrol in person at the Student Centre on the ground floor of the College site on Pelham Street.

The University‚Äôs Registry Department will send you instructions on how to activate your student account and how to then enrol online. Once you have completed this enrolment you will be considered a University of Brighton student which will trigger any funding you have applied for to be released. 

If you do not enrol within four weeks of receiving your instructions, your application will be formally withdrawn.
