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 a telephone interview for you.

I’ve applied to somewhere else but might change my mind. What should I do?

Register for one of our Summer Guidance Days to speak to our college staff to discuss what we can offer. We have 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.

Will I be offered a place now my GCSE exams have been cancelled?

Yes. We will work with you to make sure you get the college place that you would have without the current disruption.

What should I do now I am not in school?

We would encourage you to use your time productively and continue to develop the skills that you will need when you are at college. We have included guides and resources to help you prepare for your course.

The more positive things you can get involved with will all help you show potential employers and universities that you are the right person for them in the future!

How will I be interviewed?

Tutors will conduct an interview in person or via telephone (or video call). We will arrange the best way to interview you and be in touch. If this is by telephone, please keep your phone with you and expect a call with 'No caller ID' or a withheld number.

What about GSCEs & entry requirements?

Please don't worry, we are working on plans so that no student will be disadvantaged by school closures and cancelled exams.

Places will likely be given based on the grades provided by schools. In essence, the government guidance related relating to grades can be viewed here. 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 school studies, especially English & Maths.

Will you still be running open evenings?

We are running online Summer Guidance Days, and for more information or to register your interest, see our events page.

Our website and social media pages (@kendalcollege) will continue to give you information and advice about our courses and apprenticeships. Our YouTube channel also 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 admissions@kendal.ac.uk, and we will put you in touch with the course tutor.

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. All applicants who are offered a place will be sent a Welcome Guide in July with all the information they need.
