Step 2. Apply

Step 3. Advice and Guidance Meeting

You will be invited to an A&G meeting to chat about your application. The purpose of the appointment is for you to receive more information so you feel confident in your chosen Study Programme. You can talk about your interests and goals, and gain advice about whether these will be supported by your Study Programme. 

You can dress informally and enjoy this opportunity to find out more about Huish. For applicants living at a considerable distance, this can be a virtual/telephone appointment.

At peak times for applications it may take a few weeks to receive your appointment date, please do not worry, there are enough spaces on our courses for everyone applying ahead of September.

Step 4. Offer

At the end of your A&G meeting, you will receive your offer for your place at Huish and we will confirm the entry requirements for your chosen courses. 

For all Level 3 Study Programmes, you need to achieve five GCSEs at Grade 4 or above, including Mathematics and English (Language or Literature). For some courses, there are additional requirements (please refer to the individual course page for details).

Step 5. Welcome to Huish (Taster Days) and Huish Headstart

You will be invited to our ‘Welcome to Huish’ events in July where you can trial your lessons and meet other students before you join us in September.

You will also be sent information about our Headstart Programme. The programme is designed to help you familiarise yourself with the type of work you will be completing at Huish.

Step 6. GCSE Results Day

We wish you the best of luck with your GCSEs. If your grades meet the entry requirements then your next step will be to join us at enrolment. If you don’t get the grades you require for your selected course we still have many options for your next step. Please check our website for details of our events taking place on GCSE results day or give us a call to discuss your options.

Step 7. Enrolment

You will be sent an appointment time to enrol on one of our enrolment dates that take place at the end of August. If you are unable to attend due to special circumstances, you can enrol on your first day.

At enrolment you will:

  • confirm your Study Programme
  • provide your GCSE results
  • pay the Huish Experience Fee
  • have your photo taken for your Student ID card
  • receive details about the start of term.

You will then be a Huish student!
