How to apply

If there are extenuating circumstances that you wish to advise the Admissions staff of please send supporting documentation to us with your UCAS number on it.

Criminal convictions

You should ensure that the criminal convictions declaration on the UCAS form is completed.

The College may reject an application on the basis of certain criminal convictions, may require a search of police records and may require subsequent declarations of criminal convictions.

Successful applicants will be required to complete a criminal record check.

Standards of Fitness to Train

Higher Education Occupational Physicians/Practitioners (HEOPS) have produced a document outlining the fitness standards expected of students. You can read this below:

HEOPS Students Fitness Standards

We invite you to notify us of any condition at application stage but please be assured this will not form any part of  the assessment process, it is merely to know if you require adjustments if invited to interview.  If a condition develops or is diagnosed after this point, even when you become a student, you should notify us so we can look into support arrangements for you.

Selection process

All applicants who meet the minimum entry requirements will be subjected to a scoring process. Those who rank highly enough after this process are invited to attend an interview. Interviews will take place after the closing date.

Selection will be made on the basis of this and on academic and individual qualities.

Number of places

There are 10 places available each year.

Due to the limited number of places available we are unable to consider applicants to this programme with an International/Overseas fee rate.

Deferred entry

Deferred entry is not available.
