Information for applicants
As we are currently receiving an unprecedented number of applications, your application may take longer than usual to be processed. For all of our courses, the minimum entry qualifications are published on our website and in our prospectus, however, meeting these criteria alone may not be enough to guarantee an interview or secure a place on a course.
At Cardonald, we take into account a range of criteria during the selection process. In addition to qualifications, we also consider every applicant’s personal statement, life and work experience before inviting them to an interview, or before making an offer.
