How to apply
Applying for a course is easy! If you need help in choosing the right course, just get in touch. Call our Student Advisers on 0151 551 7777 for impartial advice and guidance – they will help you to explore your options and get on the right course.
- Visit courses to apply online, or
- Post your application form to Admissions, Wirral Met College, Conway Park Campus, Europa Boulevard, CH41 4NT or bring it into one of the campuses.
- We will acknowledge your application form and invite you to enrol, or for some courses, attend an interview and or an assessment first.
- This is to help you to find out more about the course and for us to find out as much as we can about you, before you join us. You will be invited into the college to meet the tutors and discuss the course.
- Some courses require you to present a portfolio of your work during your interview or complete a presentation or assessment. Details can be found in the course's entry requirements and your interview letter.
- You can also discuss any learning support needs you may have.
- In most cases, we will offer you a place on a course, subject to availability at the college, which is right for you.
- We will then let you know, before you start your course, how and when you can complete your enrolment.
We will confirm your offer of a place on the course. Please let us know if you want to accept this offer.
- If you have an unconditional offer, you can enrol at the pre-arranged enrolment time – details will provided by Admissions.
- If you have a conditional offer, it may be dependent on results of a course you are currently studying or references for example.
- If you have been ‘referred’, this means the course tutor does not think the course or career area is right for you. Our Student Advisers can discuss with you the alternative options you may have.
