Entry & Fees

Accreditation | Entry & Fees

Applications for College qualifications can be made at any time. Places are allocated in order of receipt and applications will close when the lists are full or at the deadline whichever is the sooner.

The details on this page concern applications to the RCO’s diploma examinations. Click here for applications to the Certificate of Accredited Membership (CAM).

Diploma entries can be made:

Prospective candidates must be Full or Student Members of the College before they can sit any of its examinations. Applicants who are not Members of the College must therefore join the College as a Full or Student Member at the same time as submitting their examination application.

Coronavirus / Covid-19 Updates: the College continues to monitor and comply with all Government guidelines in the scheduling of our examination sessions. In addition, we are committed to ensuring that the revised arrangements we are required to put in place do not disadvantage any individual candidate. We will continue to contact candidates directly whenever there is an update, but the latest announcements can also be found on our news page (please click to visit).
