Applying for a Full Time course is simple…

Step 1 - Choose your subject area

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


Step 2 - Apply

Click 'Apply now!' on your chosen course. If you haven’t done so already, you will need to create an account and then continue through the application until it is successfully submitted.


Step 3 - Attend your interview and information event

Interviews will run on a monthly basis throughout the year 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 email 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 pack and enrolment

You will receive your welcome pack in August, inviting you to your enrolment date which will take place late August/early September. 


If you haven't achieved the results you were expecting, our Learner Services Team will be available to offer advice and guidance on your next steps on GCSE Results Day.


Step 6 - Start college

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