Your application to Southport College

At Southport College we want to make applying for a course as easy as possible, if you want to check on the progress of your application at any time you can call us on 01704 392704 or email

Step 1 Application

You can apply online by searching for a course using the box above or please download, print out and fill in a paper form. Once we receive your application we will store it securely and will arrange an interview with you at the College. If you attend a local school your interview may take place at your school.

Step 2 Interview

You will be invited to an interview to check if the course is right for you. It's also your chance to ask about finance and learning support at the College. You will receive a letter with the time and date of your interview along with any special instructions. If you are successful at the interview you will receive an offer certificate.

Step 3 Formal offer

We will send you a formal offer letter which fully explains the grades you need to get on to the course. You need to return the slip included in the formal offer letter to confirm your place.

Step 4 Enjoy your summer

After you have finished your exams take some time to relax and enjoy your summer break, you've earned it.

Step 5 Enrolment

In August you will receive a letter inviting you in to enrol on your course. You will need to bring your qualification certificates or GCSE results slip on the day. Any other special instructions will be in the letter.
