Application process

We are delighted that your son, daughter or ward has decided to apply for a course at Tresham. Our application process is designed to be as straight forward as possible and to ensure that we place your child on the right course for them.

How do they apply?

The easiest way to apply is to complete an online application form. Alternatively they can pop into any one of our campus locations and complete an application form in person.

What happens next?

If your child submits an online application they will quickly receive a confirmation notification thanking them for their application. We will then process their form and then send them a letter inviting them to attend an interview and guidance session for the course that they have applied to study.

What is an interview and guidance session?

These sessions are informal discussions led by the tutors of the course. Your child will be given additional information about the course that they have applied for and then an interview will be held to check that your child has the necessary entry requirements for the course. If your child is yet to sit their GCSEs then this discussion will be based upon their predicted grades.

After this session, providing that your child meets the entry criteria, they will be offered a place at Tresham. They need to complete the acceptance slip and return this to the college.

What if my child / ward does not achieve the grades they expected?

Many of our offers are conditional upon achieving certain grades at GCSE however if your child fails to meet these requirements please do make contact with us. In certain circumstances we may be able to arrange for resits to be taken whilst at college or alternatively the same course at a lower level may be an option, subject to availability.

When does my child enrol on their course?

Enrolment takes place during August and September and full details about these arrangements will be sent to you during the summer term. Some course programmes also organise a welcome event during the summer term.
