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:
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.
Your grades (or predicted grades) will be checked to make sure that you meet the minimum entry requirements for the course.
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.
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.
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.
You’ll start work with your employer and you’ll start your Foundation Degree at Northern Regional College.
