Application Procedure

Applying for a course at Riverside is easy! Once you have selected the course you are interested in you can either download our PDF Application Form and return it to the address listed below or simply apply online.

Due to the high demand for courses at Riverside we recommend that you submit your Application Form as early as you can, although applications can be made at any time of the year.

What Happens Next?

If your application is successful, you will be invited along to the College for a short, informal interview* to discuss your application and finance options.

This is to enable you to find out more about the course and ensure you have chosen the best option for your needs and abilities as well as ensuring you have the student finance information you require.

If you are successful at the interview stage, you will then receive a formal offer of a place on the course. This will be either an unconditional or a conditional offer.

An unconditional offer means that you fulfil the entry requirements and have been accepted on to the course. A conditional offer means that if you achieve certain qualifications and/or examination grades you will secure your place on the course.

If the College is unable to offer you a place on the course of your choice we will normally be able to advise you of an alternative course or level of study.

If you decide to withdraw your application at any time it is important that you inform Student Services at the College immediately. This will enable us to offer the place being held for you to another applicant.

Information and application forms for bursaries, grants and student loans will be sent to you together with the enrolment date for your course. It is essential you attend College on this date. You will be enrolled on your course and receive an induction pack.

Remember, if at any point you need assistance or information contact our friendly Student Services department who will be more than happy to help you.

Don't delay, apply now!
