Information for applicants

Thanks for applying to City of Bristol College. (If you haven’t had the chance to apply yet, check out our how to apply information.)

Our admissions system for the next academic year remains open. It is not too late to make an application to join us this September.

Guaranteed place for 16-18 year olds

With no public exams being held this summer, and with the health emergency likely to continue for most of the rest of this academic year, we are adopting an approach aimed at reducing anxiety, removing unnecessary practical barriers, and being as inclusive as possible to school leavers wanting to progress to City of Bristol College.

During the period of closure of our college centres, we are suspending all face-to-face interviews until further notice. All applicants for September 2020 are being contacted with this information.

All new applicants for a full-time course starting this September will be guaranteed a place at City of Bristol College.* Applicants are being asked to accept or decline their offer using the form on this page. We will honour any offers made prior to the coronavirus outbreak and also guarantee a place at the College for these applicants this September.

Due to the uncertainty of knowing when the college will be able to re-open again, we may need to contact applicants by phone, text or email to arrange for online or telephone assessment of their calculated grades and prior attainment, to establish their suitability for the course they have applied for, and to ensure that they are joining our college at the right level of study. This process may also involve a short English and/or maths assessment; if so, we will guide them through it every step of the way.

*If they are a High Needs Learner or have an EHCP, their application will be reviewed by our ALS team. This is so we can ensure we meet the applicant’s support needs and outcomes.

Applicants for Higher Education courses or courses for adults aged 19+

We’re still open for applications. Visit our course search to find out more about our courses.

Many of our courses open for applications during the summer, for September enrolment. However, there are some courses for adults that you can join online from April 2020.
