Applying to study with us
You are invited to visit QAC to discover for yourself the friendly atmosphere and great resources. You can meet students and staff and get answers to any questions before making an application. Call 0121 428 5041 to book an informal visit.
To apply for a place you will need to fill in an application form and medical form which we can give you when you visit. Download them using the links below or let us know if you prefer to receive these forms by post.
Usually, once you have sent in your application form to our Admissions Officer we will invite you in for an initial assessment. Then we can find out about you, your strengths, interests and support needs and agree with you the right programme. It helps us get to know you and lets you find out what QAC is like.
During your assessment you might meet the following people: a speech and language therapist, a low vision specialist, a nurse, subject tutors, a mobility trainer, a computer/assistive technology tutor and residential staff. If you have a visual impairment as part of the assessment you will be invited to the Low Vision Centre at Focus Birmingham for a visual assessment. If you are looking for a residential place you will have an overnight assessment to find out about living at College. Otherwise your initial assessment will take one day.
As soon as possible after your assessment we will write to you. If we can offer you a place we will contact you to make arrangements for you to start your programme.
Once you start at QAC we will spend a lot of time getting to know you better and making absolutely sure that your programme, support and accommodation meets your needs.

What the students say
I made lots of friends here at QAC who I will keep in touch with for a long time. I really enjoyed the mobility sessions as they helped me develop my independance.
