We’ll aim to respond within 48 hours to confirm we’ve received your application, but if you don’t hear from us in seven days time, send us an email to check we’ve got everything.
Attend an interview
Depending on the type of course you’ve applied for, you might be invited down for an interview at the relevant department. This is just a way for the tutors to get to know you and help make sure the course is a good fit for your goals and current qualifications.
Taking an initial assessment
In some cases, we may ask you to take a short key skills assessment after your interview, to find out your current level in English, Maths and ICT. The instructions are really easy to follow, you’ll have plenty of time to answer the questions and there’s absolutely nothing to worry about.
If you don’t have previous qualifications here, this helps us determine the best type of course and appropriate level for your abilities, ensuring you’ll learn the most relevant information to enhance your career prospects.
We’ll be on hand to help if you have any specific requirements or need extra support.
Receiving our decision
After your interview, or if we didn’t need you to visit in person, you’ll receive a letter in the post to let you know your application was successful.
We’ll then invite you down to enrol.
If you weren’t suitable for this particular course, don’t worry! Our support team will be in touch to help you find the most relevant course for your experiences, skills and future plans to help you succeed with The Manchester College.
