Higher Education staff at Ashford, Broadstairs, and Canterbury College are currently working remotely and keeping up to date on guidance provided from UCAS and the UK Government to monitor how applicants may be impacted by COVID-19 for the 20/21 academic year. We will communicate any changes to applicants should they be announced in light of new developments affecting the Higher Education sector.
Before you can begin your application you first need to register with the UCAS Apply system. If you are applying through a school or another college they'll probably have a 'buzzword' which you will need to use. When you have completed the form you will need to send the application to your referee who will check and approve the application. This, together with their reference, will then be sent to UCAS. The UCAS website provides step-by-step guidance for making an application.
If you are not applying through a school or college you will need to answer a set of eligibility questions before you can start your application. You will also need to supply a reference from someone who knows you well enough to be able to write about you.
The good news is that this form does not have to be completed in one go. You will be able to use your username and password to log onto your application form and update it as many times as you need. Once it is sent through you will not be able to change it or add any more information.
The initial deadline for applications is usually in January however, if you cannot quite make up your mind then don't worry. Although some of our programmes may fill up quickly, some of our courses do consider late applications where possible if places are still available.
A number of our top-up degrees are offered through our partner universities, you can find out if your course is partnered with a local university by finding your course from this list (University of Kent, code K24).
Other programmes are offered directly through the College (identified by the UCAS Institution Code of C12). For these programmes, you can also search for Canterbury College or Broadstairs College depending on which campus your course is being taught at.
(Information about application, accepted offers and achievement can be found here).
If you wish to change your course at the end of the academic year or to transfer from another HE provider mid-year please read our guidance on changing your course.
