Course Information

When does my course start?

We have a number of start dates available throughout the year, depending on the course.

The majority of our courses start in September but we also have January, April, and May start for some courses. When you make your application, you should receive confirmation of the course you have applied for.

If you have an offer, then you will have the start date in your offer email.

You can also find the information about start dates for individual courses on our course pages on our Subject Areas page, here you will find start dates as well as information about how to apply.

You can find out more about our application and admissions processes at our Application and Admissions page. Alternatively, you can call us on 01204 903 394 or email

You can also chat with our staff directly every Wednesday from 2 pm - 4 pm and periodically throughout the working week.

Alternatively, chat with our current students who will be able to share this information with you and any other course-related queries.

Or book onto one of our Open Days or Course Advice Days to find out more and speak with the team.
