How to Apply

If you are considering Orchard Hill College as the next exciting stage in your education, the first step is to complete our Expression of Interest form or attend one of our open events.

Once we have received your Expression of Interest form, we will contact you to discuss the next steps. This may be to complete assessment forms or arrange an assessment meeting to help us understand what support you need, identify the best programme for you and make sure you have everything you need to settle in at Orchard Hill College.

We recommend that you visit your local College centre so that you can meet the teams, have a look at the college facilities and ask any questions you may have. Click here for a list of our Open Event dates and times.
