How to Apply for a Full-time Course

It is so easy to apply for a full-time course at Macclesfield College. Our centralised application process means that you apply to one place for any of the courses available.

Step 1

To apply for your chosen course(s):

  • Online you can submit an application by visiting the course pages and selecting a course, then click the ‘Apply for course’ button. If you know the name of the course you can simply complete your application here
  • In person you can call at the main reception of the College to collect an application form
  • By post you can download and print a pdf application form here and send to
    Learner Experience, Macclesfield College, FREEPOST (SK 1504), Macclesfield, Cheshire SK11 8YA

Step 2

On receipt of your application you will be invited to attend an admissions interview at the College with a member of the teaching team to discuss the course and its requirements in more detail to ensure that this course is right for you.

Step 3

Following your admissions interview you will either:

  • Receive an offer of a place which will require you to complete a Decision Form to reserve this place or
  • You will be referred to attend an admissions interview for another appropriate course

Step 4

Enrolment for the course will take place following you receiving your exam results. Do not panic if you have not done as well as you had hoped as we will find a course that is right of you. In most cases this will be a stepping stone in order for you to study the course you were planning to. Alternatively if you have exceeded your expectations then again we will also ensure that the course you study will reflect the grades you have achieved.

Step 5
