Step 3: Advice and Guidance Meetings

Upcoming Advice and Guidance Meetings: Spring 2023

Shortly after the application deadline the online booking will open for our Advice and Guidance Meetings.

Advice and Guidance meetings are informal, 30-minute sessions taking place throughout the Spring and Summer terms. Your meeting will be with a member of our friendly teaching staff who will discuss your future career plans, your reasons for choosing your programme of study and find out more about you as an individual. Parents and Carers are encouraged to attend your meeting with you.


Step 4: Offer to study

Shortly after your Advice and Guidance Meeting, your interviewer will update your MyLongRoad application account with your chosen courses and conditional offer. You will be sent a confirmation email detailing your conditional offer, once you have received this confirmation email you need to log in to your MyLongRoad account to accept the offer.

Accepting your offer to study does not confirm your place as a Long Road student, however, it does mean you will be invited to our Welcome Days in the summer term.

Please note: applicants can accept and hold offers from multiple colleges before making their final decision on GCSE results day.


Step 5: Welcome Days

Upcoming Welcome Days: 6 & 7 July 2023

If you accept your offer to study you will be invited to one of our Welcome Days.

Our Welcome Days are designed to give you a first-hand experience of life as a Long Road student. You will spend the day in timetabled lessons, trying out the subjects you have applied to study with us. This also gives you the opportunity to meet your potential classmates and teachers.
