3. Interview

Once you’ve completed your application, we’ll make you a conditional offer. The condition is that you meet the entry requirements for your chosen course. We will then invite you for a virtual chat with our lecturers to make sure you’re on the right course and for you to ask any questions you may have. Please note: interviews do not take place during the summer holidays. If you apply then, you’ll be given a conditional offer and will be able to speak to the lecturers during the enrolment period.

Don’t forget to visit our Student Zone where you’ll be able to find even more information about joining College.

4. Enrolment Pack

You will receive an information pack containing additional details about student life at NPTC Group of Colleges and giving enrolment and term dates.

5. Examination Results

When you receive a conditional offer that means you need to get the results listed in the entry requirements. Again, these are uncertain times and we know results are going to be different. We are confident that the grades awarded in the summer will be fair and accurate and we are flexible in this respect. Rest assured, we will have a place for you in College.
