Enrolment & Term Dates

All students who have been offered a place will receive a letter in July with details about enrolment and induction.

Enrolment 

Enrolment is the process which confirms you are a student at the College and allows you to use UoD and other facilities like the library. You will be issued with your ID card so that you can access all the buildings on campus that you need to.

For new students starting in September 2018 you can enrol with us as soon as you receive your GCSE results. Students from 2017/18 who are progressing onto a new level or new Study Programme also need to enrol and should also receive a letter during July.

You will be required to come into College on one of the following Enrolment Days:

  • Thursday 23rd August – 9am to 6pm
  • Friday 24th August – 9am to 4pm
  • Tuesday 28th August – 9am to 7pm

You can come to enrol at any time on one of these three dates between the times shown.

If you are coming to enrol at the Leek Campus, please report to Reception and if you are coming to enrol at the Buxton Campus please report to main entrance of The Dome. There will be staff there to meet and greet you.

During enrolment, we will be checking that you have received the grades that you needed to start the Study Programme that you have been offered a place on. Therefore, you will need to bring with you the original copy of your GCSE exam statement of results. If you got your GCSE results in August 2017 you will need to bring your certificates.

If you are either a brand new or previous student and have been offered a conditional place, the tutors will also discuss these conditions with you at enrolment, to check that they have been achieved.

If your results have not been what you were expecting, please do not worry. All of our tutors and support staff will be on-hand to discuss your results and talk you through all of your options. You will also be able to ask any questions you have about College, your Study Programme, or any other subject area if you have changed your mind about the one you have chosen. Parents/Guardians are also welcome to come in with you for enrolment to ask any questions or speak to any of our tutors or support staff.

You will also need to bring a form of identification with you (i.e. either a passport, driving/provisional driving licence, NI card, debit/credit card or birth certificate).

Once you are enrolled onto your Study Programme, you will be issued with your Student I.D. card and given your timetable.

If you are unable to attend one of the Enrolment Days, please call 0800 074 0099 or email enquiries@blc.ac.uk to arrange alternative enrolment.

Parents
Parents are also welcome to come in with students for enrolment to ask any questions or speak to any of our tutors or support staff.

This will be the beginning of your BLC Experience as a student, where you will undertake lots of fun induction activities, based on your Study Programme and the College!

During this time you’ll have a series of induction sessions to find out more about College life, support services and facilities available to you. It can be a daunting time but remember we’re committed to helping you settle in and getting you set up so that you enjoy your time with us and are successful on your course. If there is anything that you cannot remember, didn’t understand or need more information on then you can ask one of the College team or look it up on these pages.
