College Applications for full time courses starting in August 2021. NESCOL’s applications are open, please apply before Christmas. Apply online at www.nescol.ac.uk. This is for pupils who are sure they want to go to NESCOL full time next year, but also for those who might return to school or who are using a college application as a back up plan for a university place or employment. Applying just means that it gives you the option to go, you can still ask for a full school timetable for S5 or S6/look for work/ apply to uni too and then see what suits you best later. The application is straight forward and does ask for a short personal statement to support your application – why this course? why would you be a good match for the course? what have you done in school to support this idea? what do you hope to do with the qualification you will gain? Career plans? Have your statement spell checked and ready before beginning your application. Use your home email address to apply rather than your school one. Other Scottish Colleges application will open soon too – please check their websites. Please let your GT know that you are applying. Any problems please ask.
