How to Apply

Application process for starting College in September 2021

During these uncertain times, we have had to make a few changes to some of our processes to ensure that we are still able to offer you a straightforward, efficient application process whilst ensuring safety measures are adhered to. To this end, we will be continuing to process all applications online.

Once you have chosen the course that you wish to study, please add it to your basket. You will then need to register or log in to proceed through your application.

If you need any help completing your application form, one of our Advice and Admissions Team will be happy to help you – please contact them on –

0800 612 6008 or

Once we have received your completed application form, we will be in touch with you regularly to let you know about all the exciting things happening at College and to support you in becoming an Activate Learning student next September.

Please see below for an outline of what to expect over the next few months.
