MANDATORILY check, before you start, if you reside in the areas where enrollments took place – the list of cities is available above. You can also verify if your residential area is eligible for funding for this course, by visiting the website and checking if your postcode (POSTCODE) yields the result "AREA: NON DEVOLVED" - click the link:

REMEMBER that at the same time you can only participate in one government-funded course. This means that if someone wants to attend an ESOL course at another college in January, they should choose only one course.
