When is enrolment?

If you are leaving school or are enrolling onto a full-time, part-time adult course or a apprenticeship with lessons in college, you will enrol in August to start a programme in September.  

The enrolment process for students enrolling onto full-time programmes is in two parts, part 1 online enrolment and part 2 coming into college to complete your enrolment. 

In late July you will receive an email from us with details about the enrolment. This will direct you to our online enrolment site, and will explain when you need to come into college for your enrolment appointment.

This is an mutli-step form, which you need to log into using the details provided in the communication from us; to save time, and for extra convenience, it will be pre-populated with the details you provided on your application form.
