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.

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 use your time productively and continue to develop the skills that you will need when you are at college. These include any skills relevant to the subject/s you have applied for and English and Maths skills.

How will I be interviewed?

Tutors will conduct a telephone (or video call) interview while the college buildings are closed. This will take place during the week you were invited to attend an admissions event. Please keep your phone with you and expect a call with 'No caller ID'/ 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 virtual open events! 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.
