Given the current situation and uncertainty around lockdown and exams, we know you will be wanting answers to many questions arising around your college application and enrolment. Here is some information to answer some of the questions you may have.
Applications and Open Days
Are you open?

Applications are open so please don’t hesitate to submit your application and secure your place for next year!
Can I visit an Open Day later this year?
Our Open Days were held virtually, so we brought the college to you! To view recordings and to find out when the next open days will be held, head to www.uxbridgecollege.ac.uk/opendays
Can I still apply and how do I do it?
Do I need an interview?
All our full-time courses and some of our part-time courses require an interview. This is an opportunity for you to have a discussion with a member of staff who is able to guide and support your transition to college, so please don't be nervous.
Do I have to get a reference from school?
There is not always a requirement for a school reference, however if you are in your final year at school/college we ask you to have your last school report available for discussion at your interview.
Interviews and Offers
Do I still need an interview or can I just come and enrol?
It’s always best to apply via our website, as soon as you can. This gives you time to think about the next steps and ask any questions you may have before enrolment. However, if you have not applied don’t worry, we will support you through the enrolment process.
I had my interview and I have been made a conditional offer but I am worried that my grades might not be as good as I had hoped...
Don’t worry! We want to reassure you that even if the grades you are awarded don’t quite meet the offer you were given, or they are better than you expected, we will find the right place for you.
I have an offer, what do I do now?
Great, you are in the right place! The next stage is enrolment and we will definitely be in contact to let you know what happens next. Given the current situation we will be working hard to ensure you are support through the whole process, so if you have any questions call Admissions on 01895 853333 who will be able to help.
When can I enrol?
Enrolment usually starts from the day the GCSE results come out and this year that is on Thursday 26 August 2021. We can’t enrol everyone on that one day so we will be in touch with all applicants to confirm the enrolment dates and times. We will also update our enrolment dates and times on our website here: www.uxbridgecollege.ac.uk/enrol
What do I need to bring with me to enrolment?
You need to be bring evidence of your exam grades. If you have been made an offer, your letter will also tell you about any other documents that you have been asked to bring along.
