How to Apply

Applying to Study with NPTC Group of Colleges

Applying to college can seem complicated, that’s why we’ve put together this page – so you can be sure you’re on the right track. If you have any questions or need help at any time, call our Admissions team on 01639 648033.

Make the Right Choice

The number of courses on offer might seem a bit overwhelming, especially if you’re not sure exactly what you want to do. Before deciding, think about the subjects you enjoy and the things you like to do in your spare time.

We offer a huge range of courses at all levels up to degree and beyond in subjects ranging from Agricultural Mechanics to Welsh Second Language. Your GCSE results will help you decide which level is best for you. Whatever your qualifications, we have a course for you.

To help you make the right choice, our staff are on hand to answer any questions you may have. Call, email or DM us on Facebook or Twitter. We’ll also hold a series of Open Events throughout the year, and each one is an opportunity for you to view our facilities and ask as many questions as you can.

Even once you’ve accepted the offer, your choice is not set in stone. There is still plenty of opportunities left for you to talk to your course tutors and view our facilities.

As a result, we encourage you to attend as many of our Open Events as you can in order to be sure the course you chose is right for you.

In addition, you also have the opportunity to experience ‘A Day in the Life of an NPTC Group of Colleges’ Student’.

During the summer holidays, we’ll send you an enrolment pack. Read the pack carefully – it’ll tell you everything you need to know before you join us. Don’t hesitate to get in touch if there’s something you don’t understand.

Just so you know, enrolment will begin on GCSE Results Day, and the minimum you’ll need to bring is your exam results and £25 to cover the Administration Fee.

If your grades aren’t what you expected, please don’t worry; our guidance team will help you find a course that is suitable for you.

At enrolment you will have your start date, and told where you’ll need to go.
