Course Details

Please view the Foundation course details and our Special Exam Requirements Policy before applying to ensure you are enrolling on the correct course.

Course dates


Application Deadlines

Applications must be received no later than ten working days before the first of the classroom based sessions start.

Applications from students with special exam requirements must be received no later than five weeks before the first of the classroom-based sessions start. This is so that we can arrange with the Radio Society of Great Britain (RSGB) for any special requirements to be put in place; this can take a few weeks.

Please note

Applications received after the deadline, even if paid for in full, may not be processed. These application deadlines are in place to ensure that we comply with the RSGB’s strict exam registration deadlines, so we are sorry that it is not possible to adjust them.

In the case that your application is received after the deadline we will try to offer you either a full refund of course/exam fees paid to us, or we can apply them against a future course.
