How To Apply

Let's get started

The Admissions Team works with careers advisors and guidance staff in schools arranging Open Events at college, attending events in school such as Parents Evenings, and organising college tours, Taster Days and activity sessions throughout the academic year.

The Admissions Team will also handle your application to Franklin College and keep you informed every step of the way. You will have a one-to-one interview, either in school or at Franklin to help you to put together a suitable programme of study.
