There's more information below.

What to do before enrolment

Log into your applicant portal and check you have:

  1. Accepted your offer
  2. Completed your Get Ready for College form
  3. Uploaded a reference from your school, if you’ve been asked to provide one
  4. If your appointment is after you get your GCSE results, please log into the portal and take a picture of your results. If you have any difficulty doing this, please don't worry.

You can log into the portal by clicking here. If you need any help uploading documents, such as a reference, click here.

If you've applied to study Health and Social Care, you can read more about how to prepare for your work placement online here. 

What to bring to enrolment

You must bring a copy of your GCSE results. We won’t be able to enrol you without this.

If you are a non-UK national you will be asked to do a home/overseas assessment form, and you will also need to bring your passport with you to enrol, as well as your residency permit or evidence of your current residency status in the UK. If you are an EU national then the college is required to verify your settled or pre-settled status. You can find out more on our website here.

If you are studying Childcare or Health and Social Care, you will need to have a DBS check before you start your placement. Nescot will organise this for you, but you'll need to bring some extra documents to enrolment. Please click here to see what to bring. 

Performing Arts students only:

All Performing Arts students must audition before they enrol. If you have not already attended a group interview and done an audition then you will need to record yourself performing, and send it to us before your enrolment appointment. Please prepare one of the items below, and email it or send it via a file sharing service to rduscha@nescot.ac.uk. If you have already auditioned then you do not need to do this.

  • A monologue from a published play – this should be about 15 lines, or one minute long
  • A verse and chorus from a Musical Theatre song
  • A short dance piece.

Art and Design students only: 

If you have not already had an interview then you must bring a portfolio of artwork with you to your enrolment appointment. This could be a physical sketchbook or portfolio, photographs of your sketchbook, or digital work. You can send digital work to Sarah Morgan before your appointment by emailing smorgan@nescot.ac.uk. If you have already had an interview then you don’t need to bring a portfolio with you to enrolment.

What happens at enrolment

You’ll have a chat with your tutor and make sure that the course and the level you’ve applied for are still right for you. If you’ve got better GCSE grades than you expected we might be able to move you up to the next level of your course. If your GCSEs didn’t go to plan then we might be able to move you to a different level, or to a different course. If you’re not sure about the grades you need, you can check our website.

Some students need to buy uniform or equipment for their course. You will have been told about this at your interview, but you can read more on our PPE pages here. You will need to buy or order your uniform or equipment at enrolment, so that you have it for the start of term. If you need some help with the costs please have a look at our Student Finance pages here. If you are studying Childcare or Health and Social Care we will help you to organise your DBS check. Please click here to read more and to see what to bring with you. 

After enrolment: Induction and the start of term

At enrolment you will be told the date for your induction. Induction for full-time students is on September 7, 8 or 9, depending on which course you're doing. At induction you will be given your timetable. 

Lessons start from Monday September 12. You can read our term dates for the year ahead online here. Students in Foundation Learning will have their induction and teaching from September 5.
