STUDENT STORIES

Shelley Buttar, is 20 years and studied the Foundation Degree in Fashion (which is now a HND in Fashion).She is currently a Buyer’s Administration Assistant at Zully UK. “After getting my A Level results, I didn’t get into my first choice, which was Hertfordshire University. I remembered visiting the College to find out about their A Levels and Higher Education courses. I looked into getting onto a fashion based course and after having an interview with tutor Carole Semaine, and with guidance in regards to course modules and my future goals I knew Barnet and Southgate College was right for me, even more so than Hertfordshire University was. So I enrolled on a Foundation Fashion degree, based at Wood Street in Barnet, which is a great campus, the facilities were excellent with state of the art printers, Apple Macs, sewing machines and brand new equipment perfect for fashion students. The course also came through clearance on UCAS so I could have also enrolled that way.” Rose Kaleke is 54 years and studied the Foundation Degree in Fashion (which is now a HND in Fashion). She now owns her own tailoring shop in Africa. “Barnet and Southgate College really made me what I am today I gained so much knowledge and had a great team of tutors who were very inspiring and helpful not only to me but everybody in our class. I really enjoyed College life because there was a mixture of students from other countries and I made lots of friends some of whom I’m still in contact with. If I had the resources I would definitely return to study at Barnet and Southgate College, because I can still feel the warmth that was there during my time there. My future plans are to open up a fashion school which would be the first of its kind in my country. I would like to impart the knowledge I gained from my time at College onto others, especially young girls and women, so that they can in turn be empowered and be self-reliant as I am.”

Daniela Cavalli-Warby studied the Foundation Degree in Early Childhood Studies, she is a registered childminder From commencement of her two year Foundation Degree Early Childhood Studies, Daniela continued to operate her “outstanding” childcare provision, demonstrating a passion for early years child care and education, whilst continually encouraging fellow practitioners to have high aspirations for themselves and the children and families they liaise with. With a thirst to continue in Higher Education, Daniela decided not to stop with her Level 5 Foundation Degree, but progressed in September 2012 to join Year 3 of the BA Early Childhood Studies programme at Middlesex University. Daniela is on track to complete her full B.A. Hons Degree in 2013, she said: “Reflecting on my journey from pre –registration for my home based child care business to today, completing the final year of a BA Early Childhood Studies Degree, I have to pay tribute to and acknowledge the quality of teaching, support and mentorship that I have received from Barnet and Southgate College. Craig Carter studied the Foundation Degree in Business. Craig enrolled on the Foundation Degree Business part-time programme in February 2009. The flexibility of the part time programme, allowed Craig as a serving London fire officer, to fit his course attendance and related study around his demanding work commitments and family responsibilities. His employer took an active interest in his education by sponsoring his course. Many of his assignments were based upon his experience in the workplace and culminated in a five thousand word Management project investigating changes to the training procedures in the Brigade.

Universities and College Admission System (UCAS) If your course specifies, you can apply through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS). We can help you do this if you need support. UCAS has a points system that converts qualifications into points, for example an A grade at A Level is worth 120 points. To enrol on a course you need to achieve a certain number of points. Some courses also require you to have a certain number of points from specific subjects. For a complete guide please look at: www.ucas.com Note: To join one of our Foundation Degrees you will need an interview and students whose first language is not English will need to demonstrate IELTS skills of 6.0 or above. For HNDs in Graphic & Interactive Design, Fashion and Art & Design you will need a portfolio demonstrating creative ability and aptitude for the subject. An audition will be required for the HND Performing Arts programme. Mature students with relevant work experience and without formal qualifications may also be considered at interview. For more detailed information on entry requirements, please see relevant qualification information within the course details. Many mature learners take advantage of the opportunities on offer at the College. If you left school some time ago and would like to return to full-time education please apply. Don’t worry if you do not have the formal entry qualifications. We can discuss your experience and whether your chosen course is suitable for you at interview if you contact Course Information.

For the latest information please visit www.barnetsouthgate.ac.uk, email: info@barnetsouthgate.ac.uk or call 020 8266 4000

Interview Once we have received both your application and satisfactory reference forms, we will invite you to an interview. Please bring evidence of your qualifications and achievements. We aim to offer you a place on a course at your interview. Please note any offer of a place maybe conditional upon achieving certain grades/ qualifications or meeting other conditions. Types of Offer If you meet all the entry requirements and we are satisfied with your reference, we can give you an unconditional offer of a place. If you are waiting for exam results, your reference is delayed or you need to take a practical test for your course, you will be given a conditional offer. The conditions you need to meet will be explained to you at your interview. Most applicants with conditional offers simply need to show evidence of their exam results when they receive them. If you receive a conditional offer, don’t worry. You should, however, consider other courses before you get your exam results. Then, if you don’t achieve the necessary grades or level of work required, you will have an alternative ready. If the interviewing tutor decides that your chosen course is unsuitable for you at the time of interview, you may be invited to attend an appointment with a member of the careers advice and guidance team. Exam Results Don’t forget to bring proof of your exam results when you come to enrol. If you don’t achieve the grades required for your chosen course, don’t worry. We may be able to review our offer or suggest an alternative option.

Waiting Lists Remember that some courses fill quickly. Early application is advised. However if all the places on your chosen course have been allocated, you may be given an offer on a waiting list. This may still be a conditional offer, with requirements to meet before you are accepted. We will contact you in the second week of September 2013 (if not before) if a place becomes available. What Happens Next? We will contact you to invite you to enrolment, which is the final stage of this process. Learning Support If you have declared a support need for a learning difficulty or disability, or a support need is identified during the interview, you will have an interview with a member of the Learning Support team who will discuss your support needs for the course and agree what support can be provided for you. We are committed to helping you succeed by giving you the resources needed to do this. Language Support If you have a language support need (ie ESOL) a member of the Language Development team will assess your support needs for the course and agree what support can be provided for you once you have started. Disclosures If you have declared either a medical condition or a criminal conviction disclosure you will be contacted by a Safeguarding Officer to discuss your disclosure. It is important that you provide accurate and full information when contacted in order that the College can be sure to meet its safeguarding and support responsibilities. A disclosure does not result in automatic exclusion of your application.
