We are still accepting applications for students looking to start in September.
We’re continuing to process College applications as quickly as possible, even though our administration staff continue to work from home. It may mean your application might take a little longer for us to process, so if you haven’t heard back from us straight away, don’t panic, you will be contacted as soon as possible.
We held our first online Course Advice Morning, utilising Zoom video technology.
If you missed it, we'll be hosting another one in the coming weeks, and you can still watch our welcome talk video below, which gives a great overview of Myerscough and what we do:
For students who have already received offers, and are concerned about how this year’s GCSE and A Level results will be calculated, don’t worry. We’re not going to leave you high and dry without a place. The Government's advice on exams and grading can be found here.
For students who have already submitted applications, we would normally invite you in to College for ‘face-to-face’ interviews or an ‘Applicant Day’ experience. Please note that these events planned will now NOT be taking place. The departmental teaching teams and/or Admissions Team will be contacting you to make alternative arrangements. They will either arrange telephone/Skype discussions or they will now just assess your application form and make offers of places at a level appropriate to your expected/predicted GCSE grades, without the requirement for you to attend College for interview.
The Application Form does contain a Personal Statement section which is used by tutors to assess your application. Please use this statement to provide as much as much information as you can, highlighting your enthusiasm for the subject and any experience that you might have.
Departmental teaching staff will be contacting all during the coming weeks, to reassure you and answer any questions that you might have.
Any applicants who require Additional Learning Support will have their applications forwarded to the Inclusive Learning team for consideration. These might take slightly longer to process but, rest assured, we will progress them as quickly as possible.
Our website LiveChat function remains active and staffed. If you have any questions please use this to contact us. Similarly, please try to email email@example.com rather than ringing the College.
All of our Adult Skills Part-Time and Short Courses have now stopped (with the exception of our dedicated online teaching programmes), and short courses due to start will not be proceeding.
