External Requirements

Not all entry requirements are academic. If you need to meet any external requirements for a course, they will be listed on the Course Entry page.

This may include a Disclosure and Barring Service check, a Declaration of Health form or an Occupational Health check. We will send out the relevent forms for you to fill out, so all you need to do is make sure you send them back to us once you've filled out all the sections


For some courses you may be required to pass literacy and/or numeracy tests. If your test is conducted by us, you will be sent an invitation via e:Vision. If you need an alternative date you can simply request this by logging a Helpdesk Call via e:Vision.

If you have applied for a teaching course, you will need to complete Professional Skills Tests conducted by LearnDirect

More information about the Skills Tests.

Criminal Convictions

If you declare a criminal conviction, you will be sent a form to fill in, asking you to give details, in order to help us decide whether this will have any impact on being accepted. More information about the DBS check.
