What if I apply after the deadline?

We are no longer accepted applications after the deadline and therefore we advise you to have a firm alternative place to study for September.

What are the entry requirements?

There are three types of study programme you can apply to study at Ashton Sixth Form College – the A-Level Programme, Mixed Study Programme (mix of A-Levels and Vocational A-Levels) or a Full time Vocational Programme. For each study programme there are different admissions requirements. Many courses also have further, more specific entry requirements. Please ensure that you meet the entry requirements for your chosen programme of study before applying.
