How an online College Introduction Meeting works

Once you have applied and booked your online College Introduction Meeting (CIM) we will be in touch by email with the link to join the online meeting by Microsoft Teams. 

As an attendee of a live event in Microsoft Teams, you can watch live events and participate in the Q&A. You can't share audio or video.

What happens after an online CIM?

Once you’ve attended your online College Introduction Meeting, you will receive an offer of a place to study with us at college. Your offer will be based on meeting the entry criteria and a satisfactory reference from your current school or college.

We’ll then keep in touch with everything you need to know about getting started at college in September.
