Deciding on which path to take in college is one of the most important decisions you will make. Our full time courses are designed for school leavers aged 16-18 years and offer you wide possibilities such as going to university, progressing into an Apprenticeship or heading straight into employment.
Full time courses are a combination of practical and theory-based lessons taught in class and through self-directed study on campus and at home. You’ll have access to the very best equipment and facilities and plenty of support throughout your studies. All of our courses are delivered by staff who have real experience in the area you’d like to study.
Whatever career you are interested in, Fareham will have the right course to help you get there.
Once you have submitted your application online, we will be in contact with you via letter to arrange an informal pre-interview between you and one of our Careers Centre Advisors. This is an opportunity to discuss your plans for the future and the various course options you are interested in.
Don’t worry if you’re torn between a number of courses, we’ll make sure that you find the path that’s the best fit for you, your aspirations and the grades you’re hoping to achieve.
In the spring term, we will also ask your school or previous college for a reference.
Due to the current situation caused by COVID-19, we encourage you to attend your interview on your own or with one other family member/guardian. If you would prefer for your interview to take place over the phone, please contact the relevant Careers Centre Advisor stated on your interview letter.
Following your interview with the Careers Centre Advisor you will be invited to attend an Intro Session for your chosen course. This is the second part of your application and vital to secure a place. Your Careers Centre Advisor will give you a paper invitation, so make sure to keep this safe.
Once you have had your pre-interview and attended your Intro Session, we will send your conditional offer letter to you in the post. This conditional offer is subject to a satisfactory reference from your school or previous college.
Please also be aware that for certain subjects you may need to submit a portfolio or audition before we can offer you a conditional place, your Careers Centre Advisor will discuss this in more detail at interview.
