There are two different application processes for Higher Education and professional courses depending on whether it is a full-time or part-time course.

Applications for Full-time Higher Education Courses

Applications for full-time Higher Education courses must be made via  UCAS – the Universities Admissions Service,  quoting our UCAS Institution Code E32 - until Clearing is entered on 5 July 2018.

Applications for Part-time Higher Education Courses and Professional Courses

If you are applying for a part-time Higher Education or Professional Level course you should make your application directly to the College. You can apply via any of the following ways:

Apply Online

Once you’ve decided on the course you are interested in, click the 'Apply' button from the course listing and complete the online application form. Alternatively you can access the online application form here and submit it. We will then contact you to confirm we have received your application.

Download the Part-time Enrolment Form

If you would prefer to complete your application in writing please click here to open and download an Application Form. Please print and fill out all the fields. You can then post it to us at the main College address or drop it in to Client Services. 

Contact Client Services

You can also get a copy of the application form by contacting Client Services via email at clientservices@esc.ac.uk, telephone 01737 788444 or by popping into the office during opening hours.


Applications made after 5 July 2018 for all Higher Education and Professional Courses should be made direct to the College online or via Client Services (01737 788444).

Interviews: Everyone applying will be expected to attend an interview prior to being offered a place on the course.

Guidance Notes

For all Higher Education courses, you are welcome to approach East Surrey College directly for an informal discussion, or to arrange to meet a member of the relevant course team.

Unfortunately we are unable to offer places on Higher Nationals or Foundation Degrees until your UCAS application has been received.

Different rules may apply during the Clearing period (mid August to early September), but this is subject to places still being available.

As demand is high we recommend that you apply for your chosen course as soon as possible.

You will be offered a place subject to meeting the published entry criteria for your course and/or satisfactorily completing an interview. For FdA Early Years Care & Education only, an enhanced CRB check will also be required.

Please note that in Higher Education, an offer of a place is not necessarily guaranteed merely by meeting the basic entry criteria. Many other factors must be taken into account such as your evidenced potential to study at a higher level and the likelihood of you completing the course.

Information, advice and guidance is available at every contact stage. More information can be found in our guide.
