Yes! I'm in. What's next?

The detailed steps below will let you know what to expect from your application through to beginning your career as a software developer:


STEP 1
Applications for 2019 have now closed. We expect applications for our 2020 intake to re-open in September. The process described below applies to our 2019 intake, and we expect the process to be similar next year.


STEP 2
Your grades (or predicted grades) will be checked to make sure that you meet the minimum entry requirements for the course.


STEP 3
As this is an employment opportunity as well as a Foundation Degree course of study, Northern Regional College will contact you to find out which employers interest you so that you can meet them.

STEP 4
You will then arrange with your potential employer(s) to attend interviews. If you are successful, an employer may offer you a job subject to conditions, e.g. that you get the necessary grades in your exams.


STEP 5
If you’re leaving school this year, your Higher Level Apprenticeship with the employer, and place on the course, will be confirmed subject to you achieving your predicted grades in August.


STEP 6
You’ll start work with your employer and you’ll start your Foundation Degree at Northern Regional College.
