- How do I enrol?
You can enrol by coming to College during on any of the dates on our enrolment calendar. You’ll need to come to the campus where your course will be based. Most HE courses are based at our Southwark campus.
It’s vital that you bring with you your ID and evidence of your exam results/existing qualifications, along with details of any loans you’re applying for. Otherwise, we won’t be able to enrol you.
If you’ve applied directly to the College or through UCAS, and received an enrolment letter:
Just come along at the time given in your letter, and we’ll get you started!
If you’ve applied and not received an enrolment letter, or if you haven’t applied yet:
You can come to Clearing or one of our main enrolment days when you’ll need to fill in an application form to get the process started.
- When can I enrol?
We will be open for HE enrolment, at both our Southwark and Lewisham Way campuses, on the dates below. You’ll need to come to the campus where your course will be based. We will also offer Clearing both online and via our dedicated phone line.

- What will happen at enrolment?
This will depend on your chosen course and whether you’ve already applied or not, but will include:
- Filling in an application form (you skip this step if you have already received an offer)
- Interview with an academic tutor to check through your academic evidence and confirm the course you would like to enrol on
- Fee assessment, during which we will assess the fees you need to pay, taking into account any loans you are applying for
- Processing by our Admissions team including taking your photo for your College ID card
You may also have:
- English and maths assessments, if you are not able to provide evidence of your English and maths GCSE grades
- Discussion with our Additional Learning Support team
Our Guidance & Progression team, Apprenticeships team and Childcare Bursary advisors will also be available at every enrolment day to give you support and advice.
- How long does enrolment take?
You should expect to be with us for at least 2 hours if you are NOT taking an English or maths assessment.
If you ARE taking an English or maths assessment, these will take one hour each.
Your fee assessment will take around 20 minutes.
We will do all we can to make things run as smoothly and quickly as possible, but please be patient: it’s important we cover everything properly at enrolment in order to avoid issues later on. The best time to arrive at the College is first thing in the morning in order to minimise waiting times.
- How long does enrolment take?
To enrol, you will need to bring:
- ID (passport, birth certificate, driving license or National Insurance card)
- Exam result slips or qualification certificates
- Enrolment letter and course offer if you have them
- Record of achievement/progress if you were at the College last year
- Evidence of any loans you have applied for, including the Student Loan and Advanced Learner Loan
If you are not an EU national:
- Evidence of your right to live and study in the UK
If you are on income-based benefits and seeking a fee discount:
- Evidence of benefits received in your household (e.g. official notification letter or bank statement dated within the last two months showing your current home address)
- Your National Insurance number if you receive JSA or ESA (WRAG)
- Additional Learning Support
Our specialist Additional Learning Support teams will be on-hand to talk to you about any learning support you may need during your course.
- Fees, loans and bursaries
If you have already arranged a Student Loan, you’ll need to bring evidence of this (an official letter showing your home address) with you to enrolment. If not, you will be able to apply for a Student Loan at enrolment and we will take your application reference number as evidence of the loan, enabling us to enrol you. You must, however, have the loan approved within the first six weeks of your course to continue your studies.
