To apply for a place at King Edward’s your completed application form must reach college by 6th February, however you are advised to submit your application at the earliest possible opportunity. The earlier we receive your application the easier it becomes to schedule an interview with a tutor who has experience in your chosen subjects.

Route 1:

The simplest way to apply is by completing our online application form. Our form usually takes about 30 minutes to complete, this can be done in one go or by re-visiting a saved form over several days. Applying this way allows you to follow hyper-links in the form to specific information on our website, what’s more this is the only route which gives you an email direct from the college confirming receipt of your application form.

Route 2:

You can apply through UCAS progress. Many schools in Birmingham, Dudley, Staffordshire and Solihull offer this facility

Route 3:

You can apply by completing a copy of our paper application form, available here, or from the main Reception area in college.

However you apply, your application will be considered and we will be in touch to either offer you an interview or to decline your application

Please note:

If you have any additional learning support needs, for example additional time in exams or a laptop for note making in lessons, you need to provide as much information as possible on our learning support form. The college actively supports students with additional needs and uses this information to ensure student needs are fully met at interview and, if they are successful, any equipment or support needed can be planned for well in advance of September.

Preparing for your interview

We will use the interview as an opportunity to learn more about your strengths, motivations and aspirations in order to agree the best possible A level programme for you. Our interviews are not intended to be a stressful experience and you will have the opportunity to ask questions. As far as possible, try to relax and allow our interviewer to learn about you. We understand you may be nervous and will do our best to put you at ease.

You should be prepared to tell us about how your studies are progressing, your hobbies and pastimes, any part-time or voluntary work you’re involved and, above all, why you have chosen the A Levels listed on your application form and what you hope to achieve in the future.

Most interviews last approximately 15 minutes however there is no golden rule. The duration of an interview does not correspond with the offer decision. All decisions are made in the days or weeks after interview, following input from several staff who will consider your application, and sometimes after additional information has been sought from your school.

We look forward to hearing from you.
