  • Keighley College - 6 April 2020
    Still accepting applications - apply online. For enquiries about applications and offers, contact the college via email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

  • Kirklees College - 7 April 2020
    Over 500 offers have been sent, based on predicted grades and references. 
    The college has removed it’s application deadline, so students can still apply. Applications are being processed remotely but anything posted to college in the last few weeks will not have been picked up, email applications to check, if you are concerned. Apply online.
    Most subject areas are offering students conditional places based on their predicted grades and reference. Some students will have a telephone interview. Where this is needed, the applications team will work with students to arrange a suitable time. Please make sure you have given the college an accurate email address and contact number, so the college can get in touch while it is currently closed.
    Update for students applying to do a foundation course: The college will be sending students a 'conditional' offer of a place within the foundation department but not on a specific course. Staff feel the best way to determine the right course for an individual will be by students completing an initial assessment at enrolment and then an induction period in the foundation department at the start of term.
    Students with an EHC plan will not get a conditional offer until the college has completed the consultation process for that student with the relevant local authority. If the student is applying for courses outside of the college's foundation department, curriculum teams, where applicable, will contact applicants to discuss any reasonable adjustments that may need to take place while on the course. The applications team will liaise with applicants to arrange this.
    Anyone advising a student should not contact the college subject/curriculum teams but use This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. - for more complex students, ask for the email be sent on to Sally Rawson, Head of Student Recruitment. Messages will be dealt with quickly and by the appropriate person. At the minute the college can’t guarantee all messages are getting picked up that go direct to tutors.
