I’m ready to apply – what do I do?

Applying for an NHC course is easy – simply go to our 16-18 learners page and pick a subject area that interests you. Choose one of our courses from the curriculum page and click ‘Apply For The Course‘ to fill in your details and submit your application. Once you’ve sent your application, we’ll send you an email to confirm that we’ve received it (or a letter if you haven’t got an email address).

If you’re interested in more than one of our courses, feel free to apply to each one! There’s no limit on how many applications you can submit, but we will ask you to pick just one when you enrol in August.

If you need further support and guidance with making your application, you can call us on 01462 424242 or complete our contact form.

What are the next steps?

After you have applied…

1.  We’ll arrange an interview with you as soon as we can. Depending on your course, this may be face-to-face or online through Microsoft Teams.

2. After your interview, we’ll write to you to offer you a place, either as a conditional or unconditional offer. An unconditional offer means you can enrol. A conditional offer means you need to meet some more requirements before enrolment – either exam results or a reference.

3. This is the moment you officially become an NHC student! It typically takes place at the end of August, although you can enrol after term starts in September. We’ll let you know the exact dates nearer the time.
