Apply Online

Once you have completed the form and sent it to us you will receive an e-mail acknowledgement (please check ‘junk’ folder if there is a delay).
If you would prefer to complete a paper application, please either download a version from the website or request a copy from our Admissions team.  Please note – King Edward VI College does not accept applications via UCAS Progress.

There is no closing date for the receipt of applications but we strongly advise you to submit your application by Tuesday 30 April 2019 to ensure the offer of a place in September 2019 (applications received after this date will be classed as ‘late’ applications).

What happens next?

All applicants will have a Guidance Meeting – the meeting will take place either here at the college or in your school (depending on which school you attend). You will be informed where and when your meeting will take place by e-mail.  Meeting appointments are issued approximately 1 week prior to the date, so please don’t worry if there is a delay hearing from us after acknowledgement of application, we arrange meetings from February to May.

The Guidance Meeting is quite informal but it is important to be well prepared for it. Please make sure you have read the prospectus and checked the entry requirements on the website for the courses you are applying for.  At your meeting we will ask to see a copy of your most recent school report (or another document which gives your predicted grades).
This is the chance for us to find out more about you and for you to ask us any questions so make a note of anything you may like to ask before you come – you may forget on the day!

Upon a successful guidance meeting, you will receive, in writing, an offer of a provisional place. All offers are conditional on you meeting the college entry requirements and the entry requirements for the courses you are applying for.

Should you require additional support to attend your meeting, eg mobility restrictions, etc, please contact Shirley Axon on
