Want to study at York College? Check out our guide to easily applying for your course

Looking to apply to York College for a September 2023 start? Great – we can’t wait to meet you. But before you start your application, check out this advice from Izzy, in our admissions team, on how to make the process as easy as possible.

The first place you need to visit is our website Home | York College - and hit the apply button. Our website is full of handy information and stories from our students, to help you decide which course is right for you.

It’s at the application stage you’re able to choose two paths and then decide between them later. You can choose from our A Level programme, which will mean choosing four subjects. Or you can choose a vocational subject, which will be one course. You can also apply for an apprenticeship programme. Find out more on apprenticeships here.

The course application process is quick and simple and will just ask for some personal details about you and your chosen course. If you have any questions before you apply, contact Once you click submit, the hard work is done.

What happens next?

Check your inbox for our email inviting you to a Guidance Discussion meeting - the next step of the process.

We want you to be confident in your course choice, so your Guidance Discussion is intended to ensure you’re clued up on your course, the College and the entry requirements.

You’ll receive this invite by email, which will enable you to join a virtual Microsoft Teams call with a tutor from the relevant division.

If you’re applying for a Performing Arts or Music course, your invite will be a face-to-face audition at College.

What if I can’t make it to the meeting?

If you can’t make the date or time you are offered, just email and we will rearrange this. If you can't attend any of the Guidance Discussion dates that we suggest, you can have this at your enrolment appointment after results day instead.

What do I need for the Guidance Discussion?

You do not need to prepare anything for your Guidance Discussion, just have any questions about the course, entry requirements or college life, ready to ask the tutor during the meeting. You need to have your predicted grades with you so that these can be shared with the tutor – these can be your mock grades or just the grades predicted by your teachers.

The meeting will take around 15 minutes and the tutor will usually talk through the conditions of the offer and explain that an email will be sent to confirm this. You should receive this the following evening. If you don’t receive the email please contact us through and we can get this resent.
