Guildford College Exam Tips: It's Not Too Late To Apply For College

Published at 2:47pm 9th August 2019.

There are still plenty of options available if you want to pursue further study, whether in higher or further education and start your course this September. It’s not too late to apply for certain courses, whether through the UCAS Clearing system, or through direct application to colleges.

Once you receive your results, you should contact the university, College or Sixth Form that you are interested in attending and find out how you can apply. There may not be places available on all of their courses, but they will be able to advise you on something that suits your interest and career aspirations.

Apply for Guildford College

You can drop in for advice and guidance throughout August and September, speak to tutors and advisors about the options available for you at college, have an interview for your preferred course, and complete your enrolment – all in one day. After visiting us, you will be ready to start your study programme or apprenticeship this September!

What is Advice and Guidance and who is it for?
Whether you're undecided about your future, or your exam results have turned out differently to how you'd expected (for better or worse, it does happen!), it's not too late to come and speak to us about your future.

Our Information, Advice and Guidance (IAG) sessions make joining us this September easy!

Our official admissions may have closed, but these short advice sessions at each of our colleges can help you get a place on a subject pathway in time for September.

• Shortlist the areas that you are most interested in and best suit your career goals.
• Prepare a few questions to ask the team, for example: What modules will I study? What future job could I get? What facilities will I have access to on campus? How will I be assessed?
