How to Apply

You can search our wide range of courses using the course search facility or the Full time Courses section, and also by taking a look at the course information in our course Prospectus. We've also produced a range of subject course progression maps so that you can plan your learning journey with us.

Applications for courses at Glasgow Clyde College are made using an online form. 

Step 1: Choose a course

Read over the course content to find out if the course is right for you - make sure you check that you meet the entry requirements. You can check the level of your qualifications against the SCQF Interactive Framework

If you have any questions about choosing a course, and support available during your studies, our Student Advice team will be happy to help, just call 0141 272 3636 or E: or visit the Advice section of the website.

Once you have made your decision and are ready to make an application, there are some items you should have to hand which will help you complete the form.


If you have qualifications, have a list of them to hand, along with your SQA number, if you have it.  If you haven't sat any exams yet, make a list of the subjects that you're currently taking at school, or college, and write 'pending' in the application form.

Workplace Experience

You will be asked to provide details of any Workplace Experience you have - it may be helpful to have a list of details of any work or voluntary experience, including dates prepared before you start to complete the form. Don't worry if you don't have any work or voluntary experience. 

We also welcome applications from Veterans. Please tick the relevant box in this section if you are a Veteran, and read this information to find our more about how we can support Veterans

Personal Statement

You will be asked to complete a Personal Statement to support your application. This is where you can tell us about why you want to do the course and any skills and experience you already have that make you a good applicant.  The statement has a maximum length of 2000 characters which is about 250 to 300 words. As the web page will expire after a short time, it's a good idea to write it up in a word document first and then once you're happy with it, you will be able to just copy and paste it into the personal statement.

You will need a valid email address.  Make sure that you don't share this account with anyone else and that you make a note of which account you have used to apply.

You're now ready to click the 'Apply' button.

Step 3: Apply
