Applications 2024: Ballot and Appeals Process

We are no longer accepting applications for September 2024. The College has received a record number of applications this year, meaning that remaining spaces available for entry in 2024 were subject to a ballot. 

All Applicants who were subject to a ballot have already been informed via e-mail. 

Applicants who were unsuccessful in the ballot will be held on our system and should anything change, the College would get in contact.  However, it is unlikely given the volume of oversubscription, that the College will be able to process further applications.  Therefore, all unsuccessful applicants are advised to secure a place at an alternative post 16 provider.   


Submitted Applications

Once you have submitted your application we will send you a confirmation email. You will be able to access your application again using your account login details that you set up when you applied.  You will not be able to change the details within your application but you can send us a message at any time using your account if you would like to do so. You can use this system to contact us with any enquiries or you can email us at

Entry Requirements

Age: Godalming College is a Sixth Form College for students aged 16-19 only.  The College does not enrol students who are 18 years or older.  For more information contact:

Funding: Godalming College is funded by the Department of Education and therefore is free for our students to attend as long as they are British Citizens or have been settled in the UK for 3 years before their start date. For further information on funding status contact

GCSE results: You must meet the entry requirements for the College and the courses you wish to study. These are based on your GCSE results you receive in August.  You must achieve a minimum of 5 GCSEs at grade 9-4 to qualify for a Level 3 Study Programme.  The absence of GCSE English Language will significantly restrict study programme options.  Equivalent qualifications at Level 2 in vocational courses (at MERIT or above) are accepted where they are directly related to the courses which have been applied for. However these courses are not adequate for entry alone to an Advanced Study Programme and would always need to be accompanied by the minimum of 5 GCSEs grades 9-4.

Please also note each course has specific entry requirements that are published on this website in the 'Courses' section.
