Apply

I've applied for a course. What happens next?

If you have applied to join Canterbury College, these are the 4 stages you will go through.

1. Invitation to an interview

After you have applied for a course (via UCAS Progress our website or by handing in a paper application form), we will get in touch and invite you to an interview/assessment day which is usually held between December and July.

If a course page doesn't have an 'Apply for course' button, you can print out an application form, fill it in and send it to Student Admissions, Canterbury College, New Dover Road, Canterbury, Kent, CT1 3AJ. You can also apply to Canterbury College using the Kent Choices 4 U service.

2. The interview/assessment day

Curriculum areas offering Assessment Days: Animal, Construction, Public Service, Science, Sport.

This provides you and your parents or guardians with the opportunity to find out everything you need to know about the course, the College and to look around(parents or guardians are welcome to attend interviews). They also provide the opportunity to make sure that the course you have applied for is the best option.

3. Offer of a place

At the end of your interview you may be offered a place on the course, the Admissions Team will send you a letter to confirm your offer via post. The offer will either be an unconditional offer (you have a place with us whatever happens) or a conditional offer (the conditions will be discussed with you by the tutor at interview).

At the end of your interview you may be offered a place on a course and the interviewer will hand you a formal offer letter. The offer will either be unconditional (you have a place with us whatever happens) or conditional (you have a place depending on your getting the right exam results).

4. Summer Taster Day & enrolling

In the summer we will write to you inviting you to come in for a Taster Day/s (this does not apply if you have attend assessment day/s). This will not apply to unconditional offers. At the end of August you will be invited to come and enrol, you will need to bring identification and your exam results with you. Depending on your grades will determine which level of the course you are enrolled onto. If you are not successful on getting onto the course of your choice we will make every effort to find you an alternative course.

At enrolment, you will complete a Learning Agreement, get your joining instructions and receive a Student Card. NUS Cards will also be available to purchase during Enrolment Day
