Admission Process

The College is committed to providing a robust admissions process that ensures fairness, transparency and equal opportunities in line with the guiding principles of the UK Quality Code and within the legal framework of the United Kingdom. The College welcomes applications from candidates regardless of their backgrounds. It actively encourages applications from mature students from diverse communities, including those who may be disadvantaged and face barriers to higher education.

Applicants who speak English as a second language and do not have relevant qualifications (e.g., GCSE or IELTS) are required to pass the OBC English level placement test for writing, reading comprehension, speaking, and listening. The applicant must meet the minimum level requirement for all language skills in order to be admitted into a course. These may vary depending upon the requirements of the College’s partner organisations. Entry requirements for all of OBC’s courses, apart from those in partnership with UWL, are as follows:
