Interested in a Further Education course?

Full-time and part-time applicants

So you’ve decided that a CAFRE course is right for you. What next?¬†Applications to our Further Education courses are completed online for the courses listed in course section of this website.

Students must be at least 16 years of age on or before 1st July in the year they propose to enrol on the course.

We accept applications for entry from the 1st October of the year preceding the September in which you expect to enrol. Apply early, if courses are over-subscribed minimum entry criteria may be enhanced and date of application considered.

Applications received after 30th June of the year in which you expect to enrol will only be considered if there are places left on the course.

You can apply for more than one course, but you must indicate your course preferences by ranking their order on your application. We will acknowledge receipt of your application form within seven days.

What happens next?

You will be invited to attend a short careers interview at the campus of your choice and view the teaching, practical and accommodation facilities. If you are successful in your application you will be made an offer of a place on a course but this may be conditional on achieving minimum examination results and/or undertaking work experience. A letter will be sent to you within five working days of the interview.

As soon as you receive your examination results you should contact the College to check if your conditional offer can be confirmed. You can contact us for information or advice at any time during the application process. When your offer is confirmed and you inform us that you are accepting a place at CAFRE, we will send you details of accommodation, timetables and any protective clothing or equipment that you may require.
