Information For Applicants

Due to the Christmas break we will be unable to immediately respond to admissions questions and queries between 24th December 2020 and 4th January 2021.

If you have a question about the application process please see: varndean.ac.uk/apply

If you are still a little unsure about what courses you wish to study then please don&t worry at this stage. You can select the courses you are most interested in on the application form, and then we will work with you at your interview to finalise your course choices, and help ensure you are on the right programme of study that will help you to achieve your future goals and aspirations.

Once we have received your application we will write to you with more details about the interview process which will take place from the end of January 2021. Due to Covid-19, this year you will be emailed asking whether you wish your interview to take place face-to-face (under strict Covid regulations of course), online or by telephone.

In terms of the interview itself, we are aware that for the majority of you, this will be your very first interview and you could be feeling slightly nervous and not knowing what to expect. However, the interview is nothing to be worried about, it is simply an opportunity for us to chat to you; talk through your application, discuss what you are interested in studying, what your future plans are (if you know them) and to find out a little bit about you. We certainly won’t be trying to make it hard for you or test you on any challenging questions!

f for any reason you are experiencing technical difficulties with the application form - please don&t worry. Just let us know by emailing information@varndean.ac.uk and we will prioritise assisting you when the college opens on 4th January 2021.

We wish you a restful Christmas and a Happy New Year and look forward to seeing you all in 2021.

* Please note that the deadline for applications is Monday 4th January 2021 at 5pm.
