Apply online

The first step is to make an application for the area you are interested in. You will have the opportunity to discuss the different course options available during the interview stage and staff will confirm which course is suitable for your future plans. This course will take place on our Sixth Form Campus, therefore any applicants aged 25+ or over who do not have an Education, Health and Care Plan will be required to complete an Enhanced DBS check as part of the conditional offer to West Suffolk College. The cost to the applicant for an Enhanced DBS is £52.00 and the DBS check can be completed through the college.

About the courses
