THE COURSE I AM INTERESTED IN IS NOT VERY POPULAR?

We always keep enrolment open as late as possible, but unfortunately, courses cannot run if too few people enrol.

If the activity you have selected is cancelled, we will try to find you an acceptable alternative. If this is not possible, a full refund of all fees will be made.

You will be contacted by text and email wherever possible or by post if no email address/mobile number has been provided.

I HAVE NOT STUDIED FOR A LONG TIME?

We aim to provide on-course support for any English, maths and general ICT skills you will use on your course.

This support may be given by the course tutor or by a Functional Skills support tutor. If you want to know more or to see if this is appropriate for your individual requirements, please speak to your course tutor or Registry Assistant.
