If you are aged 16-17, you can join one of our courses with parental consent. As an under-18 student, you will mix with students aged 18+ during your time with us and whilst you are welcomed onto an adult course we have put some extra support in place to cater to their age.
All pre-arrival information is to be received 2 weeks in advance of the start date. If you have a late booking request (within two weeks of the student’s requested start date), please feel free to get in touch with David Game College Liverpool to see if we can accommodate this. However, we can’t guarantee availability for young adults at this short notice.
