Since we consider all applications on their individual merit, we can confirm that if you have been given a conditional offer, you will now have an unconditional offer in your chosen area of study.
For those who are due to be interviewed, please don’t worry. We will call you for a telephone interview about the course, your interests, ambitions and predicated grades, and you will be offered a place at the College for September.
Once you have an offer, please visit our ‘Student Life’ page and discover the vast range of enrichment opportunities, including academies, Duke of Edinburgh award and BTC active. Those who have been offered a place with us in September can sign up now for enrichment activities starting in September.
We are looking forward to the College returning to normal and seeing you in September. In the meantime, we will continue to keep you updated. Rest assured, you will have a place at College and we are already planning how we will ensure the start of term is as smooth as possible!
Yes, you will get a place at College. We are working with the Department of Education to fully understand how you will be graded for your GSCEs, but in the meantime, we will be offering you an unconditional place at College based on your interview and predicted grades.
This won’t impact our application process for future students: interviews will take place by phone and you should apply in the normal way.
Anyone who isn’t able to participate in an interview because of illness can have their interview rearranged.
We have received further information from the Government about the process for awarding grades this summer (with the exception of vocational qualifications, where we are still awaiting further guidance).
We will continue to work with the exam boards and the Department of Education to understand the process and will update you as further information becomes available.
Interviews are still being held, but rather than doing them face to face they are now being conducted over the phone. Our curriculum teams will be calling everyone on the telephone number you provided on your application form. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide you with a specific time and date of when this will happen.
Please check your voicemails and emails if you think you may have missed a call, we will have left a message or sent you an email advising you what to do next. Our curriculum teams will keep trying until they get through to you, but if you have any questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org
If the details you supplied have changed, please email your updated information to email@example.com and we will update your records accordingly.
Once our curriculum teams have interviewed you, they will instruct our Admissions team to send you an offer if they feel you have passed the necessary criteria. Admissions will send this out to you in the form of an email, so make sure you keep an eye on your email account.
To accept your offer of a place, there will be a button you select on the offer email we send you. If you prefer you can email our Admissions team on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01278 441368.
We would encourage you to accept your offer unless you are 100% sure you don’t want to study at BTC. By accepting your offer it allows us to plan class sizes and secures you a place for the start of term. If you don’t accept your offer until later in the year you may find the course you want to study is full or be cancelled because of low numbers!
If you are unsure and need some extra information to make your decision take a look at the Student Life page on our website. This page will tell you about the exciting enrichment and academy activities you can get involved in as a BTC student, how we can support you with your learning, 2020/21 term dates and lots more.
Not a problem, if you wish to withdraw your application all you need to do is email our Admissions team at email@example.com or call 01278 441368.
