What happens after you apply for a course? Here you will find out everything you need to know and answer any questions you may have.

There's a few things you'll need to consider between accepting your offer and starting your course. This page has everything you need to know!

If you don't achieve a 4 or above in English and / or Maths, you will continue to study the subjects with us at CWA.

All students aged 16-18 on the first day of their course will have their course fully-funded by the government (i.e. there is no course fee). Depending on the course, there may be additional costs such as equipment/uniform, DBS checks, printing and educational trips.

The college operates a financial support scheme which can help students whose financial circumstances make it difficult for them to meet the costs associated with study.

Now that you’ve completed your application, you’ll shortly hear from us to book an information session for your course. 

Are you aged 19 or older* and thinking about further education? With an Advanced Learner Loan, there are no upfront costs and you won't start to pay anything back until you earn at least £27,295 a year.

Our Applicant Experience Days will give you a taste of college life, specifically for the course you’ve applied for. They are also the best possible way for you to understand what your college day will look like. As well as being a student for a day you will also:

  • Meet the other people who have applied for your course
  • Meet your lecturers
  • See the facilities and classrooms
  • Try out the catering available on campus
  • Meet the mentor team
  • Get all your kit information and try it on (where needed).

We will be sending out invitations and booking details soon. Below are the provisional dates by subject and campus, so you can save the date!

We are working with Cambridgeshire County Council (CCC) and local bus providers to subsidise the cost of transport to help widen the options for young people in Fenland and help remove the financial barrier for parents / guardians. If you are eligible, you won't need to speak to the local authority or bus company as we will sort everything for you!

If you haven't lived in the UK for the last three years, you might not be funded to study at CWA.

It’s easy to get to and from college, as all four of our campuses are well-serviced by local bus services, with King’s Lynn campus also being a short walk from the train station. We also have limited car parking and bicycle shelters on each site.
