To guarantee your place on a course, you need to come in to college to enrol. You need to do this even if you've already had an interview with us.
Come to the campus where your course is running. If you're not sure where this is, check our list of courses by campus.
You can come in any time during our enrolment opening hours, but places on our courses are first come first served. Check our timetable below and come as early as you can to avoid disappointment.
Please remember to bring a form of ID with you to enrolment, as you won't be able to enrol on a course without it. You can find a list of all the things you'll need to bring to enrolment at the bottom of this page.

What will happen
You need to enrol at the campus where your course is running. If you're unsure what course to study, our advisers will be at enrolment to help you make a decision.
You should expect to be with us for 1-2 hours, although at busy times this may be longer.
We need to see your exam results or qualifications to make sure you're suitable for the course. See 'What to bring' for a full list of what to take with you. Note that if you don't bring your GCSE certificates or don't have grade A*-C in GCSE English or maths you may need to take a short English and maths test at the College.
Interview and enrolment forms
After we've seen your qualifications, the course tutor will talk to you and answer any questions you have. They'll also help you complete the short forms we need to enrol you.
Fees and payment
If you have any fees to pay, we'll take your payment information.
The last step is to take your photo to create a College ID card for you.
