Higher Education - how to apply
All applications for full time higher education courses that are validated by a university will be advertised on UCAS under the university with the college shown as a campus. Full time higher education courses validated by Pearson/Edexcel will be advertised on UCAS under Canterbury College. The best way to find the courses on UCAS is to use the four digit UCAS code, shown on the course web page.
All applications for part time programmes are through Canterbury College. Applications should be submitted direct to Canterbury College.
Check with the Student Information Centre at the College and for UCAS deadlines and for late UCAS applications. All applications will be considered but we encourage you to apply early to have the best possible chance of gaining a place on the course of your choice.
Late applications are accepted through UCAS and the College, if you have any questions or need guidance about how to apply, please contact the Student Information Centre on 01227 811188.
You may be invited to attend an interview where you will be given advice and guidance about the course. The interview is an opportunity to begin a dialogue to ensure that the course you have applied for is appropriate for you.
Your offer will either be unconditional or conditional on you achieving the entry requirements for the course subject to available places remaining.
We will make every effort to provide you with an alternative course should your plans change or your eventual examination results be higher or lower than expected.
In the summer we will write to you inviting you to come in to enrol before the start of term. You will need to bring your examination results with you.
If you have not achieved the entry requirements, you should consider meeting with your tutors during enrolment where they will advise you on alternative courses that may be suitable for you. At enrolment, you will be asked to complete a Learning Agreement, given your Student Card and your joining instructions.
Fee Code E: Higher Education Courses:
Higher Education programmes at Canterbury College are validated with three partner universities and three awarding bodies, and therefore there are differences in the tuition fees. You can see which university or awarding body your chosen course is validated through, on the individual programme pages.
The fees are shown below for the year 2012/13 and not for the whole programme. Part-time fees are pro-rata, depending on how many modules are delivered in each year. Fees for continuing students may be significantly different from the fees quoted below.
All fees quoted are based on a standard 120-credit programme of study:
- University of Greenwich undergraduate full-time £6,000 fees for home students in 2012-2013 for the first year. (2013-2014 entry fees are subject to approval)
- University of Kent undergraduate full-time £6,000 fees for home students in 2012-2013 for the first year. (2013-2014 entry fees are subject to approval)
- Canterbury Christ Church University undergraduate full-time £6,000 fees for home students in 2012-2013 for the first year. (Not applicable for DTLLS)
- Equivalent Learning Qualification (ELQ**) £6,000 (ELQ Students may not be entitled to a Fees loan)
- Part Time fees are applied pro rata at a rate of £6000 for 120 credits *
*This applies to Part Time BA, FD, HNC and HND.
**ELQ - due to recent government changes students who are considered to be studying equivalent or lower level qualifications (ELQ's) may not be entitled to a student loan.
No full-time undergraduate student with home status will have to pay fees up-front for their first degree. Instead you can choose to take out a student loan which will be paid directly to the university on your behalf.
You will not have to start repaying this until you have left Higher Education and are earning over £15000. Student loans to help with living costs are also available for full-time students, and you may be entitled to a non-repayable maintenance grant (dependent on household income). Any fees advertised are applicable for one academic year only and are subject to revision annually.
