Everyone’s Telford College journey is different – and that’s what makes the campus such a vibrant and fascinating place to be.
There are many different ways for you to become a Telford College student.
You might apply for an academic, vocational or apprenticeship course as the next step of your journey after finishing school.
You may be looking for a change of career direction, and attend one of our open events to see what’s available.
You could be looking to return to education at a later stage in your career to top up your qualifications, or try something completely different.
Or you might be looking to expand your qualifications on a part-time basis, side-by-side with your day job.
Here are some of the key milestones on the Telford College student journey:

We open our doors at regular intervals each academic year to showcase the curriculum and offer bite-sized demonstrations.

Attend and interview
Once you have applied, you will be contacted by our admissions team who will invite you into college for a chat with the team. They will talk to you in more detail about your preferred course, and find out a bit more about you.
Accept your offer
Assuming everything goes well at the interview, we will offer you a place, subject to any upcoming exams and/or evidence of existing qualifications. It is important you contact us to accept your offer, as this officially secures your place at Telford College.
Ace your exams
If you are sitting exams before starting with us, we wish you the best of luck in getting the grades you expect - or better! Your exam results are important, as our courses do have minimum entry requirements.
Apply for financial support
We will be in contact with you when our financial support portal is open for applications – in many instances, we could be able to offer support towards the cost of coming to college. Find out more about our financial support - click here.
Attend a new students' day
Near the end of each academic year, we hold new students’ days. This is a chance for students who have accepted their place to get a general feel for college life, and spend the day in their curriculum area, getting to know the team.
Receive your enrolment information
Enrolment is the last step of your journey towards becoming a Telford College student. We will contact you before the summer with details of how to check and complete any additional information required – and explain when you need to come in for your enrolment appointment. Find out more about enrolment - click here.
Our admission, careers and advice and guidance teams are here throughout the summer to answer any questions. Our curriculum teams will also be accessible, so any course-related queries can be answered. Just bear in mind that it may take a little longer for a response during the summer break.
Attend your enrolment appointment
This is the stage when the final bits of paperwork are completed. At the end of this process you will be issued with your college ID badge, and your initial timetable which outline your start date and time . . . once that’s done, you are now officially a Telford College student.
