How to apply

Applying for a full-time course

Applying for a place on a full-time course is simple. All you need to do is click the "apply" button on the course you're interested in.

Interviews for full time courses starting in September are postponed, but don't worry - applicants will instead be given a formal offer* of a place on a suitable course.  Other entry requirements still apply. 

Where you meet the entry requirements for your chosen course you will be accepted.   

Where you do not meet the entry requirements for your chosen course, we guarantee you a place on a suitable alternative. 

If you would like the option of a telephone or online interview, or access to advice and guidance, please contact the College by emailing info@eastridingcollege.ac.uk.

*Exceptions include those with a criminal conviction or who have been previously been excluded, or where the SEN needs or requirements of an existing Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) cannot be fully met.  In these circumstances a risk assessment may be required before we are able to confirm your place at the College.

Alternatively, request a paper application form. If you would like a course guide, you can download one or request a course guide to be delivered.

If you want to apply for a full-time vocational course with additional A-levels, just apply for the full-time vocational course on your application.

We accept applications throughout the year but we advise you to apply early.  You can come along to an open event to find out more about studying at East Riding College before you apply.
