Please note: Enrolment can take a few hours, so please allow yourself plenty of time to enrol. We will try to enrol you as quickly as we can, but we recommend giving yourself 2 - 3 hours minimum just in case the enrolment hall is busy and you are asked to queue.

If you are a previous student and you have any outstanding fees/payments you will NOT be able to complete your enrolment until all debts are settled and paid in full. You can clear outstanding debts at enrolment before you start the process, please identify yourself to the triage team and bring cash or card(s) with you to make the payment(s). 

Like other public buildings in the UK the College has put additional security in place and we recommend you only bring essential items to your enrolment. The college has adopted a small bag policy and large bags/rucksacks etc. may not be admitted for your safety and the safety of others.

How long will my enrolment take?

We recommend that you allow at least 2-3 hours to complete your full enrolment to ensure you complete each stage in full and you are enrolled on to the right course and level.

At peak times the enrolment process can take a while, which is why we suggest giving yourself plenty of time and making sure you have all of your ID, certificates and evidence with you. Hot and cold drinks will be available during your enrolment and wherever possible we will provide seating for any queues that build up. We ask that you remain patient and our 'Success Makers' will try to ensure that the process is as smooth and quick as possible.
