Not sure about criteria?
You will be required to attend college for your Welcome Event. This will take place at the college campus you have applied for. (Should COVID-19 circumstances change this may become a phone call, we will update you of any changes). We will communicate using the email address you provided us with on your application – remember to check your spam and junk folders!
During your Welcome Event the Tutor will consider making a verbal offer, this will be based on your predicted grades and meeting other criteria. A confirmation email will be sent once your offer has been processed.
We will try and get any offer to you as quickly as possible but on some occasions there may be delays should extra checks be needed, e.g. for foreign national, EHCP recipients, safeguarding concerns.
It is important that if you have an Education, Health and Care Plan, that you tell us so that we can support you appropriately on your course. You can do this at any time, e.g. when you apply, when you enrol, or by emailing us at: or . More information in FAQs below.
Taster Days are held in late June and consist a maximum of 3 days at College. You will participate in a range of activities, which are intended to be informative, enjoyable and subject specific. You will have a chance to meet other students on the course, and department staff. You will also be able to familiarise yourself with the College and the rooms you will be using when your course starts.
You will be sent information regarding Joining Instructions and Enrolment via email, these will be sent over the summer.
The Joining Instructions will inform you on the following:
• Instructions on how to Enrol
• Any fees for your course and how to pay
• Transport Information
• How to apply for the Bursary
• How to upload your Student ID photograph.
Once you have enrolled you will be sent your timetables and start date.
If you are concerned about the financial costs associated with your course or feel you may need financial support, CRC may be able to help via the CRC Bursaries.
There are lots of ways to get to both of our campuses, whether you’re travelling by foot, bike, bus, car or train; we’re within reach across the region. College bus booking forms are typically released in June.
It is important that if you have an Education, Health and Care Plan, that you tell us when you apply so so that we can work closely with your Local Authority to ensure that you have an effective transition to college and our offer of a place at CRC is conditional on the consultation being complete and approved.
This will ensure that we put in place the most appropriate support to ensure that you are successful at College.
For EHCP recipients, it is a statutory requirement that your Local Authority forwards a copy of your EHCP to the college for assessment. We work closely with all Local Authorities. It would help speed up your application if you have informed your school where you think you will be starting your education in September. A good opportunity to this will be at your Annual EHCP Review, or by informing your Local Authority by email. For Cambridgeshire Local Authority, please contact them via this email address , informing them your name, date of birth and that you are applying to Cambridge Regional College.
