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.

Prospective candidates must be 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.
