Every effort is made to ensure that the information given on the Newbury College website is correct at the time of publication and that the course information is given accurately and describes the courses offered by the College. However, from time to time details may change and be awaiting updating.
Newbury College takes no responsibility for the consequences of error or for any loss or damage suffered by users of any of the information published on any of these pages, and such information does not form any basis of a contract between the College and site users.
Up-to-date information will be provided at interview or before enrolment where applicable and if prospective students are concerned about the detailed elements of a course being offered, they should contact the Information Services Team to check the course information prior to acceptance of an offer of a place.
Course availability, changes and closures
Newbury College endeavours to provide a wide range of courses and learning programmes that meet the requirements of local people and employers. The College aims to provide information on these courses at the earliest available opportunity to enable prospective students to register their interest. Some of these courses may still be awaiting approval from the awarding body. Prospective students will be made aware of significant changes to the status of such provision prior to enrolment.
Newbury College reserves the right to postpone, relocate, restructure, withdraw or cancel any teaching sessions or examinations, any course or particular options, modules, units or specialisms within a course, due to the occurrence of any event or circumstance beyond its reasonable control (including, but not limited to, industrial action, whether on the part of the College’s staff or otherwise, shortage of staff, unavailability of facilities or insufficient student numbers – normally this is not less than 16 but may be varied at the College’s discretion).
Entry requirements, DBS and student eligibility
Many courses offered by Newbury College are subject to minimum entry requirements. Entry requirements are largely based on GCSE/BTEC grades and UCAS tariff points however alternative qualifications and experience may be considered. A skills assessment, including English and Mathematics may be required for some programmes. If an applicant does not meet the entry requirements for their chosen programme of study, alternative provision may be offered.
Individuals applying for Child Care, Health & Social Care and other programmes in which students may come into contact with children or vulnerable people will have to complete a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check. You will be advised at interview if your chosen programme of study requires a DBS check.
If the DBS check comes back showing offences have been committed, the College will carry out a risk assessment to determine whether the offence may cause problems for you. If this is the case you will be advised about the implications and always offered advice and guidance. Not all offences are a risk so the return of a DBS check may not impact on your choice. All DBS information is confidential and only those who need to know will be given the information.
Newbury College also reserves the right to reject applications from individuals on any programme of study who have been previously placed on a Level 3 Disciplinary at the College due to misconduct.
