Choosing the right courses on a 3+1 basis: a summary
After we receive your application you will be invited to a Course Advice Session to discuss your initial ideas about the learning programme you would like to follow and the mix of two year courses and one year courses which will suit you. Your  nal decisions will be made when you enrol at the College, after you have received your GCSE results. Whatever your results, and wherever you are in the application process you can always talk to us about your options.
