All applications for part-time HE courses are made directly to the College and are received throughout the year. Applicants are advised to submit their applications as early as possible, to avoid disappointment.
Making your application
- Apply online
- Request a Bridgend College HE application form, Tel: 01656 302 252 or E: firstname.lastname@example.org
The next step
Once your application form has been received by Bridgend College, a copy will be sent to the appropriate department for consideration by the academic staff. They will consider the information provided by you and the comments from your referee. Successful applicants (at application form stage), may be invited to attend an interview or applicant day at Bridgend College. During this process, you will meet the course team, have an opportunity to discuss your application, ask any questions you may have and view the high quality teaching facilities and learning resources on offer.
An offer of a place on your chosen course
Should you be successful in gaining an offer of a place on your chosen course, then this offer will be communicated to you via letter from the HE Team at Bridgend College. Bridgend College aims to process applications as soon as possible, after receiving your application form. If you are successful, and receive an offer for a place on the course, the offer could be one of two:
The course tutors feel you have satisfied the entry requirements for the course, and your place on the course is unconditional. You will be advised by the HE Team how to accept or reject this offer. All unconditional offers are subject to the provision of satisfactory qualification certificates, at the point of entry.
You have been accepted onto the course on the condition that you obtain certain grades or points in exams or qualifications. Learners given a conditional offer need to let the college know their exam results as soon as they receive them. In some instances, even if the results don’t fully meet the conditions of the offer, it can still be possible to gain a place on the course.
Confirming your place
If you have an unconditional offer, you can accept your offer at any point by contacting the HE Team or by returning the acceptance slip enclosed with your offer letter. If you have a conditional offer, upon receipt of your qualification results or meeting any course specific conditions set, you are requested to contact the HE Team, to confirm your position.
If you don’t meet your conditions of offer
For some learners, finding that you may have fallen slightly short of your conditions of offer or specific course entry requirements leads to a very stressful and often confusing time. Do not despair, contact us to discuss the options that may still be available to you and we will do our very best to provide impartial advice and guidance and/or signposting to other course opportunities available locally.
