What should I bring?

All applicants must bring:

1. Your certificates, or exam results slip

2. Fees to pay for your course. Students aged 16 to 18 studying FE courses, or those aged 16 to 24 with a valid EHCP, don't usually pay course fees. Students aged 19 and over usually do need to pay course fees. You can find out more information online here. If your employer is funding your course you will need to bring a letter confirming this, on company headed paper.

3. Fees to pay for any protective clothing and/or equipment. You should have this ready for starting your course in September. For more information see the pages of the course you have applied for

4. Proof of any benefits you are receiving

Some students will also need to bring:

  • If you are applying to study Health and Social Care, Childcare, Counselling, Osteopathic Medicine, Sports Therapy, Healthcare Play Specialism or Teacher Training, you will need to have a DBS check (formerly called a CRB). You will need to bring three forms of identification, and your national insurance number.
  • If you are applying for university-level study you will need to bring your passport, driving licence, or birth certificate
  • If you are applying for an apprenticeship you will also need to bring your national insurance number, passport or driving licence, and a proof of address
  • If you are not an EU passport holder you should bring your passport and any residency documents

How long will it take?

We will be as quick and efficient as we can. During busy periods it can take up to two hours or more to enrol, so please allow plenty of time.
