Applying to SGS College Couldn't Be Easier...
There are a number of ways you can apply for your chosen course - these are explained below. If you need any help, please email [email protected] or call 01453 761165 and we will be happy to help.
How to Apply for a Full-Time Course
The entry requirements for each course are listed in the course information section. Mature students without the necessary qualifications may be accepted, depending on their previous experience and subject to assessment. You need to state the qualifications you've already achieved and the exams you will be sitting on the application form.
Once you're happy that you've chosen the right course, you should apply. You can do this by simply clicking the Apply Online icon displayed on your desired offering page.
If you have any trouble applying online, we also accept paper enrolments. You can download and print our printable Full-Time Application form or visit your local campus to collect a form. An enrolment form can also be sent to you by post, simply contact our Admissions team to arrange this.
How to Enrol on a Part-Time Course
All Part-Time courses are available to enrol online via a quick and easy online enrolment form. Once you have found your desired offering simply click the Enrol Online icon to apply.
If you have any troubles applying online we also accept paper enrolments. You can download and print our 2023/2024 Enrolment Request Form. Alternatively you can visit your local campus to collect a form. An enrolment form can also be sent to you by post, simply contact our Customer Experience team to arrange this.
Attend a College Open Event Onsite
Before you apply, you may wish to attend one of our open events. These give you the chance to meet the tutors, get information on courses and experience our state-of-the-art facilities.

Full-Time learners will receive email confirmation of a conditional offer. Learners will need to accept a place in order to enrol onto the chosen course fully. Our communication will provide full details on how to do this.
Part-Time learners will be notified of enrolment status via email confirmation.
All communications includes vital information about getting started at SGS College. We recommend setting [email protected] as a safe email sending via your chosen email platform/app.
A college interview is more like a discussion, so that you and the departmental staff can figure out if the course you have chosen is the right fit for you. We want you to enjoy your time studying and the opportunity to chat about this is an important part of the selection process at SGS College.
Usually only our Full-Time learners are requested to attend an interview. If you are asked to an interview there are some standard questions you should be ready to answer:
What do you know about the subject you are applying to study?
Why are you interested in this subject?
Why do you want to attend this college in particular?
What are your short-term and long-term goals?
Remember, the course tutor is not trying to trick you, they just want to hear that you are ready to take the next step in your studies and are making the right choice.
Please note, if you have an interview for one of the courses listed below you will need to prepare the following:
Art & Design courses
Once you have been offered a conditional place you will be invited later in the year to come along to a taster session and experience college life.
This will allow you to take part in course activities and meet your tutors, as well as other future SGS learners.
Please note, if you have a Taster Session for one of the courses listed below you will need to prepare / bring the following:
- Sensible clothing suitable for working with animals: full length trousers (no shorts), long or short sleeved t-shirt (no crop tops), enclosed footwear (wellies, work boots or trainers), no piercings or jewellery (new piercings can be covered with tape) and long hair tied back.
