Am I a Guaranteed or Open applicant?

Guaranteed Applicant

A student who meets one of the following criteria:

  • Resident in postcode areas KT7, KT8 and KT10
  • Students studying at state schools without a sixth form entry in NE Surrey and the London Boroughs of Richmond, Kingston and Merton 
  • Siblings of current or previous students

Open Applicant

All remaining students.

Applications meeting the Guaranteed Applicant Status criteria will automatically result in the offer of a place at the College. Places will then be allocated to those with Open Applicant Status using a ballot system. 

As in previous years, the vast majority of Open​ applicants will be offered a place.

Once available places have been filled, any unsuccessful applicants will be offered a place on a reserve list, which will be created according to the outcome of the ballot. ​ 

The application process is summarised below.
