Applications to enter Higher Education programmes within Yeovil College University Centre are governed by the HE Admissions Policy in addition to the Student Terms and Condition of Entry. Applicants are advised to consult the specific entry requirements for each programme, as detailed throughout course description pages and the YCUC prospectus. For learners wishing to apply for a programme who do not hold the mandatory entry requirements it is asked that you consult directly with the University Centre prior to making an application – either through emailing or calling 01935 845454 to speak with a member of the HE Admissions Team.

In cases where applicants do not hold appropriate mandatory qualifications opportunities exist to apply for programmes through alternative entry methods.
