Applying for a Full Time course is simple…

Step 1 - Choose your subject area

Use our website, prospectus and open evenings to help you choose the right course.


Step 2 - Complete & return an application form

Download the form or pick one up from the Learner Hub.


Step 3 - Attend your interview and information event

Interviews will be continuing throughout the summer and you will be invited to the next available interview event via email and SMS. Your interview will give you the opportunity to meet the course team and ask any questions you may have.


Step 4 - Secure your place at BSDC

If you are successful in your interview, you will be made a conditional offer via post within 5 working days. All you need to do is confirm your acceptance with the Admissions Team to secure your place at BSDC.


Step 5 – Welcome days

These take place at the beginning of July and give you the chance to meet others who have applied for your course, participate in some fun team-building activities and start to familiarise yourself with College life.


Step 6 - Prepare to enrol at BSDC

After your exam results in August, you will be invited to attend enrolment in late August or early September.


Step 7 - Start college

The majority of our full time courses will start in September 2018.
