When we receive an enquiry from a potential student regarding one of our degree courses we invite you in for an informal discussion which is called an Initial Advice with a Support Tutor. At this initial discussion you will receive all the information you need regarding studying at Holy Cross University Centre, how to apply, fees and funding available etc. Support Tutors will also review your existing qualifications, discuss entry requirements for your chosen course and advise on a suitable alternative pathway if relevant.
For full time courses, applications are made online through UCAS (University and College Admissions Service) which forwards your application to the university associated with your course. Support Tutors will advise you on how to make an application via UCAS.
Your Support Tutor will advise on the best way to apply.
We understand that many of our applicants have non-traditional qualifications and that they may have other skills and experience that are transferable to degree level study. We actively seek and welcome applicants with a variety of qualifications and/or experience.
At Holy Cross University Centre we work with more than one university partner and offer different types of degree programmes; this means that the entry requirements are not the same for all courses. For example: we have some courses where entry is assessed mainly on academic entry qualifications; some courses where an alternative entrance assessment is an option; and other courses which are work-based and have an entrance requirement to be in a specific type of placement setting.
For these reasons, it is important that all potential applicants come in to Holy Cross University Centre to have an initial advisory meeting with one of our experienced Support Tutors so that we can spend time discussing specific circumstances and course entry requirements in more detail.
