Once you have successfully applied, you will be invited for interview, either in person or by telephone. This is an important opportunity for you to decide that our School is right for you.
We encourage our potential students to visit the School, both to see the premises and facilities and to chat with staff and students. Visits can be booked from Mondays to Fridays and also on Saturday mornings.
If you are unable to visit, we will contact you to arrange a mutually convenient time to discuss your application by telephone or Skype.
Within a few days of your interview you will receive written notification as to whether or not the School can offer you a place.
If you accept a place on the course, the offer is normally held open for a month to allow you to complete the formal registration requirements:
Once your place at the School has been confirmed, a non-refundable deposit* of £3,000 is payable, which will later be deducted from the fees due at prior to the start of the course. A refund of this deposit will only be considered under the most exceptional circumstances.
A banker’s letter is required, to confirm you have sufficient funds to cover the tuition fees and living costs
A signed copy of the School’s standard contract (included in the registration pack)
If you have any questions, please email us – or call to talk through any aspects of the furniture course.
