  7. Additional Terms

To that end we will endeavour to make any reasonable adjustment to ensure our students’ specific needs are met. Consequently, as part of your application process, please make sure that you let us know about anything you might need.

    Because there are only a limited number of places on each course, students are advised to enrol as early as possible to ensure a place on their chosen course.  Evening sessions are offered as a voluntary additional item by individual tutors and spaces are dependent on demand and availability. Unfortunately, places on your chosen evening session cannot be guaranteed.
