Entry requirements

View The Isle of Wight College's standard entry requirements for full-time college courses (depending on the level of the course to be studied).

Successful completion of an interview is required before a place on the programme can be offered.
Who the course is for
This course is aimed at 16-19 year olds, (up to 25 years old with EHCP).
