When applying for a course, you're actually applying for the subject are e.g. Sport. This means that once you get your GCSE results, we can put you onto the Level that is right for you. Whatever your results, there's a place for everyone here!
All our interviews with tutors are remote this year. The interview is nothing to worry about, it's an opportunity for you to ask any questions and to ensure you are applying for the right subject area and that your programme will help you achieve your career goals.
You will then be emailed an ‘offer of place’ and also be given access to wide range of resources and insights about what it’s going to be like to be a Weston College learner.
We will email you around Easter about securing your place by enrolling online
Once you have your GCSE results you will be able to complete the final stage, a pre-induction appointment in August/September. This is where we decide together, what level you should start on.

When you enrol you're automatically part of the Student Union (SU). As well as organising fun events and activities, one of the elements is to ensure that your voices are heard on your course.
Student reps are nominated and pass on your feedback in order to make the college life even better.
Once a year the SU also runs a campaign to elect executive members including President, Vice President, Secretary and Campus Officers for each campus.
Here's a list of helpful items we think you should take a look at before starting in September!
