Late applications for courses starting in September 2020
Deadline: Friday 14th February 2020 by 3pm
Ashton Sixth Form College is a very popular and over-subscribed college. We cannot guarantee an interview or an offer of a place to anyone who applies after the published application deadline. Any application received by the College after the deadline will be considered a late application and will be placed on the waiting list.
Late applicants are therefore advised to have a firm alternative place to study for September.
Admissions process for late applicants:
- Students can apply online via the college website until Friday 31st July. Anyone wishing to make a late application after this date should contact Admissions at the college.
- Late applicants must complete the online application and send a supporting statement explaining the reasons for making a late application. Any exceptional circumstances should also be stated in the supporting statement. This should be emailed to the Admissions department firstname.lastname@example.org
- The college will review each application on a case by case basis taking in to consideration any exceptional circumstances. Usually the college will not be able to make a decision about applicants on the waiting list until after the college’s main enrolment at the end of August once it is clear if the college has met its funding capacity.
