From September 2021, we will be offering new courses in uniformed public services and are accepting Newton Rigg applications for the second year of study in some course areas.
More Information

We are continuing to accept full-time applications and apprenticeship Talent Pool enquiries.

If you have any questions, please email our Student Services Team at admissions@kendal.ac.uk, and we will respond as quickly as possible.

Are you taking applications for September?

Yes. Please apply in the normal way and we will be in touch to arrange an interview for you.

Are you running Open Evenings?

Yes, we are running virtual Open Evenings, giving you the opportunity to speak to our course tutors and support staff. We have a broad range of courses including A-Levels, technical and professional qualifications and apprenticeships, and our Student Advisers can give you impartial advice about your options at college and in the local area.

Our website and social media pages (@kendalcollege) will continue to give you information and advice, and our YouTube channel includes a wide range of videos to provide you with an insight into college life. If you have a question about a college course or apprenticeship, please email hello@kendal.ac.uk or call us on 01539 814700.

Will I be offered a place if exams are cancelled?

Yes. We will work with you to make sure you get the college place that you would have without the current disruption. Places will likely be given based on the grades provided by schools/colleges. We understand this will only give us a partial insight, and as such the first few weeks of the course will include further checks to ensure students are on the right course and the right level for them. We realise these are uncertain times but would advise you to continue working hard with your studies, especially English & Maths where applicable.

What should I do to prepare for college?

We would encourage you to use your time productively and continue to develop the skills that you will need when you are at college. The more positive things you can get involved with the better e.g., online courses, exercise, projects etc. These will help you show potential employers and universities that you are the right person for them in the future!

Here are some useful online courses to explore:

How will I be interviewed?

During the national lockdown and/or if travel restrictions continue within the tiers, tutors will conduct an interview via Microsoft Teams. Once you have applied, our Admissions Officer will contact you to discuss this further with you. Alternative arrangements are possible if you are unable to access MS Teams.

How do we apply for bus passes and financial support?

Applications for college bus passes are through our website and will open in May. Financial application forms will be available from July. For more information, see:
