Here are some frequently asked questions about applying to Redcliffe. If you cannot find the information you are looking for then please ask a question.
How long does the application process take?
We aim to complete the application process in six weeks. Overseas applications can take longer where interviews need to be arranged in country.
How can I help to speed up the process?
The longest part of the process is gathering your references. To speed up the process it is always helpful if you can encourage your referees to return their forms as quickly as possible. Providing email addresses for your referees on the application form enables us to send and receive information efficiently.
When should I apply?
You can apply at any time for a course at Redcliffe. We advise that you submit your application early (between September and March) to give us time to process the application and prevent disappointment if spaces are already filled. If you are also applying for a Strategic Leadership Fund award please see the Strategic Leadership Fund page and factsheet for information on application dates.
If you plan to study full-time and are eligible for student finance from the UK Student Loans Company, you are advised to apply early in order to give time for your student loan to be processed. See the course fees page
for more information.
I'm not sure which course to study - which one should I apply for?
If you are unsure as to which course you should apply for we recommend that you visit the college to discuss your needs with one of our tutors. Alternatively if you are unable to visit the college, we are happy to discuss your requirements by telephone or email.
My husband/wife is also planning to study at Redcliffe - do we need to complete separate application forms?
Each person intending to complete a course at the college needs to submit an application form.
