How to apply

Find out what The IIE’s Varsity College has to offer you by filling in an enquiry form, or by engaging with Ed our full-time study enquiry bot, or Pam our part-time study enquiry bot, on the website or on Facebook. One of our Student Advisors will then contact you to discuss which qualifications would best suit you based on your career ambitions and abilities.

Other ways you can contact us is by requesting a “call-me-back” on the website, engaging with us on live-chat, or calling any of our 8 campuses across the country directly.

We can’t stress enough the importance of requesting an appointment with a skilled Student Advisor or part-time consultant. It’s an opportunity to learn more about the IIE programmes you can study with us and have all your questions answered before you commit to studying.
We encourage prospective full-time students to come onto campus for their interview, for an experience of our safe and secure campuses, student life, sports offering, accommodation and more. To book your appointment click here. Prospective part-time students can opt for a telephonic appointment by requesting call-me-back on the website, chatting live with one of our consultants, or contacting one of our 8 campuses directly.

Apply without delay if you feel that you have all the information you need about the qualification you want to study at The IIE’s Varsity College. Our small classes fill up quickly, the sooner you apply, the sooner we can secure your place if you meet the admission requirements.

If you plan on undertaking full-time study, we once again advise that you set up an interview with a Student Advisor. They will be able to guide you based on your academic strengths, your marks and passions towards the best qualification for you.

If you plan on studying part-time and require some guidance on studying with us, our designated team of part-time consultants are a live chat away. Alternatively, you can contact them by filling in a call-me-back form or contacting one of our 8 campuses directly.
