How to apply

It just takes 3 easy steps to secure your place at Newham College.

Realising your aspirations couldn’t be easier with courses designed to help you get that great job or progress to higher education.

Step 1: Apply

Once you have found your preferred course, go to the relevant course page and click the ‘Apply now’ button that corresponds to your preferred start date. Submit the completed online application form and you will receive an automated email confirming we have received it.

You can also pick up an application form and apply in person at either our East Ham or Stratford campuses. Address information is available from the contact page.

Check the entry requirements

Every course has minimum entry requirements which must be satisfied including your English and maths qualifications. You will find details about the requirements for your preferred course on the relevant course page. There is also more guidance about course levels and entry requirements.

Can I progress to the next level of study?

For most programmes, you will have the opportunity to progress to the next level. However, progression is dependent on you achieving a satisfactory result at the preceding level and meeting any other entry requirements for the higher level course.

Is there an application deadline?

We accept applications throughout the year but we recommend that you submit your application as soon as possible to secure your space as we receive large numbers of applications for our courses. You do not need to wait on your exam results before applying.

Funding options

Whatever your ambition, finances shouldn’t get in the way. Depending on your age, circumstances and household income, we have a range of financial support options that you may be eligible for.

Step 2: Interview

Once we have received your application form, we will contact you to discuss your application and invite you for an interview. Students aged 16-18 are guaranteed an interview with an opportunity to discuss the details of their course and about making the right choice.

You can also ask us about any support that may be available to you as a student at Newham College.

Step 3: Enrol

If you are successful in your interview, we will offer you a place on an appropriate course and invite you to an enrolment event to complete the application process, including picking up your College ID and Learner Agreement. Your space on your preferred course is not guaranteed until you have completed enrolment.

How will I know that my application is successful?

If your application is successful, you will receive an offer letter detailing the conditions that need to be met for acceptance to a course, and any other information.

Why is my offer conditional?

If your offer is conditional, you will need to send us evidence that you have met the entry requirements for your selected course (exam results/qualifications) before your space at the College can be confirmed.

How do I confirm my offer?

Please reply to the email confirming your offer as soon as possible, accepting the offer made.
