The application timetable

Our 2019 Prospectus is available now!

Our prospectus is distributed to partner schools in Leicester. Students at other schools may view the prospectus online, request a hard copy from the college or pick one up at one of our Open Days.

Information and guidance

Through your school you will receive information and guidance about the options available to you post-16. These may include visits or presentations from colleges and work-based learning representatives.


Your application to study at WQE is likely to be through UCAS Progress; this will be managed by your school. If your school does not use UCAS Progress you should apply directly to the college via our online application form.

To guarantee an interview, your application should be received by 31 January 2019.


The College will be holding Interview Days on Tuesday 12 and Wednesday 13 March 2019. Details of your interview will be posted to your home address by w/c 25 February 2019. Partner schools will be informed of these dates and applicants should ensure that they are available to attend.
