Support for applicants

We are still accepting applications for September 2020. You can apply online by searching for the course you are interested in on our ‘study with us’ webpage. If you find something you like, simply click on the ‘apply for this course’ button. You can then easily create an account online and apply for the course you are interested in.  You can even search by career if you have a career or job role in mind.

If you have already applied to our college we will continue to process your application as normal and make preparations for you joining us in September.

Anyone applying for an apprenticeship will continue to be supported in finding employment as an apprentice and you will be contacted if an employer within your chosen subject has a vacancy. If you would like to get in touch with our apprenticeships team please contact them on

Moreover, following the government’s announcement about exams and qualifications, please rest assured that your application will not be in any way disadvantaged because of the exceptional circumstances in which qualifications are having to be awarded this year.

If you haven’t already done so, please register your interest for our FREE transport to college options. More information on our dedicated college bus services can be found here.

If you have any further questions regarding your application and place at college, please do not hesitate to contact our admissions team on


Preparing to study at Warrington & Vale Royal College

To help support and prepare you for starting college in September, our knowledgeable tutors have put together a set of valuable learning resources to familiarise yourself with.
