How to apply

For entry to our full-time first degree courses your application must be made through the University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). For non-UCAS courses, e.g. part-time degree programmes and post-graduate courses, applications should be made directly to the College. 

What do I need in order to apply through UCAS?

Visit the UCAS website on how to apply and for application deadlines www.ucas.com. Alternatively, you can contact UCAS at Rosehill, New Barn Lane, Cheltenham, Glos. GL52 3LZ, or by calling 0870 1122211.

You may apply for a maximum of five courses - you should list your choices in the order in which they appear in the Handbook. There is no facility for you to express an order of preference and all your choices will be treated equally.

If you wish to be considered for both a foundation degree and honours degree course in the same subject at Farnborough, this will only count as a single choice as we make a joint offer for both courses.

The institution code for Farnborough College of Technology is F66.

When do I apply?

UCAS can start receiving applications for entry in the autumn, anytime from September the year before your course is due to start.

Late applications are accepted, however applicants are advised to apply as early as is consistent with having made a careful and considered choice of institution and course.

How is my application dealt with?

When your application arrives from UCAS, the relevant admission tutors will consider it.

Although it is our policy to interview as many applicants as is practical, you may be offered a place without interview. In this case, we will invite you to come to the College for an organised Open Day, this will give you a chance to meet members of staff and students, ask questions and have a look around.

UCAS offer online tracking of your application and will send you the official statement of our decision as to whether or not we have offered you a place. You do not need to contact us with your decision - we will be notified by UCAS, but if you have any queries before you make your final decision, please get in touch with us.

If your offer is conditional on examination results and you do not meet the conditions, we will ask the admission tutors to review your application to see if you can still be given a place. Our decision is made within a day or two and notified to you through UCAS. Please do not wait until the results are published before telling us of any special factors affecting your examination performance which you wish to have taken into account.

Disclaimer: The College has a minimum enrolment for any course to begin and reserves the right, on rare occasions, to cancel any course that does not meet this minimum number. The minimum number is required to ensure students receive a valuable educational experience during their time at the College.
