Once you've had your interview and received an offer, you'll need to be thinking about getting everything sorted to start college in September.

If you haven't lived in the UK for the last three years, you might not be funded to study at CWA.

The college operates a financial support scheme which can help students whose financial circumstances make it difficult for them to meet the costs associated with study.

All students aged 16-18 on the first day of their course will have their course fully-funded by the government (i.e. there is no course fee). Depending on the course, there may be additional costs such as equipment/uniform, DBS checks, printing and educational trips.

Now that you’ve completed your application, you’ll shortly hear from us to book an interview for your course. 

Are you aged 19 or older* and thinking about further education? With an Advanced Learner Loan, there are no upfront costs and you won't start to pay anything back until you earn at least £27,295 a year.

For some of our courses, it is necessary to purchase relevant equipment or clothing (e.g. protective clothing), whilst for some others, we offer optional college-branded clothing.

 We are working with Cambridgeshire County Council (CCC) and local bus providers to subsidise the cost of transport to help widen the options for young people in Fenland and help remove the financial barrier for parents/guardians. If you are eligible, you won't need to speak to the local authority or bus company as we will sort everything for you!

How to apply for a course at CWA and what happens next.

It’s easy to get to and from college, as all four of our campuses are well-serviced by local bus services, with King’s Lynn campus also being a short walk from the train station. We also have limited car parking and bicycle shelters on each site.

If you're unwell, have an appointment or are going to be absent for another reason, it's essential that you tell us.

We are here to help you make those all-important choices by offering you impartial, individual Information Advice and Guidance (IAG) to enable you to make informed decisions about planning for your future.

Here you will find the Term Dates for 21/22 Academic Year and the next 22/23 Academic Year

At the college you are treated as an adult and have the freedom to manage your own learning. We also provide a wide range of support depending on your needs. From personal, to learning support and even help with developing your skills. Take a look below for more information.
