Application process

Applying for a full-time course at Middlesbrough College is simple and our Admissions Team are here to help make the process even easier for you. 

Middlesbrough College Application Process


Step 1: Apply
There are a number of ways in which you can apply to Middlesbrough College.

  • You can download an application form and free post it back to us (these are also available in the back of our full-time course guide)
  • You can pick up an application form from a member of our Schools Team who visit local schools right across the Tees Valley throughout the year. Make sure to look out for us on your lunch breaks!
  • You can search and apply for a course online


  • Step 2: Information session
    Following your application, you’ll be contacted by our Admissions Team to arrange an information session by telephone. Your telephone interview will be your chance to chat to your tutor, find out more about the course and make sure it is the right programme for you.

    You can ask any questions about your course and we can find out a bit more about you including your future career goals. It is important that you have your telephone interview as it will give you an understanding of what Middlesbrough College is like and the opportunities it can provide to you.  One of our Tutors will call you in the next two weeks and the call will come from the main College number or a staff mobile number and it will be between 4pm and 6pm on an evening.  We will try you several times to ensure we manage to speak to you.

    However, if you do miss your telephone interview or if you are not sure we have the correct telephone number, please email admissions@mbro.ac.uk or call 01642 333601.  Alternatively, text ‘Telephone Interview’ followed by your full name and date of birth to 07860097439 and a member of the team will contact you.


    Step 3: Offer
    You will then be offered a place on your course. This will either be on completion of your interview or by letter. 

    If you change your mind about your chosen course midway through the year, this is nothing to worry about.

    Simply email the admissions department who will invite you to an additional interview with your new course area.

    In some circumstances, you can apply to multiple courses and make your final decision during enrolment. Towards the end of term, you will be invited to attend a taster session where you will meet your tutor, fellow students and try a real day in college.


    Step 4: Enrolment
    Once you have received your GCSE results, you will be able to officially enrol onto a course in the late August ready to start your studies in September.
