It is too late to apply for courses starting in autumn 2021: the closing date was 18 November 2020.
You cannot register, start an application or submit an application at this time of year.
The details currently on our website are for the autumn 2021 intake, and will be updated in September 2021 for the autumn 2022 intake, but you can see what's usually involved and start preparing if you wish. Some details may change for the next application cycle.

When you have completed the rest of your application, the Documents screen in your application will show you which documents you need to provide. We only accept the documents requested: we do not accept any additional documents. However, some course centres may have further requirements for documents. Please see the Courses section for details of the requirements of individual course centres.

Please allow yourself plenty of time to organise your documents:

  • Other documents
    • Who needs to provide passports and other visa/residence documents?
    • When are driving licences required?

How to send us your documents

If you have applied before and provided the appropriate documents, please copy these into your current application (you will see a Copy button on the appropriate screen). If we already have good quality copies of the appropriate documents on file you do not need to provide updated versions.

If you have not applied before (or did not provide the appropriate items) you can scan your documents and attach them to your application as pdf or jpg files. Please provide a good quality scan. We often have to contact applicants to get better quality copies eg because of photos taken in poor light or at odd angles etc.

Please note that, due to remote working related to coronavirus, we are unable to accept any documents by post.

If you do not have one of the documents yet, you should tick the "posting" box on the Documents screen in your application and you must submit your application by the closing date: 1.00pm (UK time) on 18 November 2020. When you receive the document(s) please email us a good quality scan of it as soon as possible (see the Contact Us page for our email address). We can then add this to your application before it is released to the course centres by the end of January (see the After You Apply section for more details).
