Cant make up your mind?

If you can’t decide on a course, don’t panic.

You can include all the ones that you are interested in, on your application and then discuss them with us at interview.

We also offer bookable guidance appointments for you to explore your options.

The most important thing is you eventually enrol on the course that’s right for you.


Interviews

If we have all the information we need on your application form, we will invite you to an interview. The sooner you return your form, the sooner you’ll receive an interview.

You will receive a letter telling you what you will need to bring with you on your allocated day and time, as a general rule, these are held weekly.

The interview is a good opportunity to find out more about your chosen subject (s) and will give you more information and make sure you are considering the right course for your future. Your parents/carers are welcome to come with you.


Offers

At the end of your interview, you will be given written confirmation of any exam grades (or other requirements) you need to secure your place.

Once your place is confirmed, you will continue to receive information about starting college and your journey to an exciting future will begin.

After your exam results in August, you will be invited to attend enrolment in late August or early September – this is when you officially become a Sussex Coast College student! You will need to bring in your exam results and we’ll contact you to tell you exactly when you start your course.
