Enrolment & Term Dates

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Buxton & Leek College!

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.


Students starting in the academic year 2019/20 who may have missed the three Enrolment Days on 22nd, 23rd and 24th August, can still come to the Leek or Buxton campuses to enrol – we are open Monday to Friday 9pm – 4pm.

Previous students who are progressing onto a new level or new study programme also need to enrol.

Enrolment Process

During enrolment it is important that you meet with staff so that they can ensure you are enrolling on the right programme.  They will:

  • Confirm your qualifications results
  • Confirm other entry requirements or support needs that were agreed
  • Check we have the correct information on our records

To complete enrolment, you will need to bring the following with you:

  •  If you are collected your GCSE results in August 2019, you will need to bring with you the original copy of your GCSE exam statement of results.
  • If you collected your GCSE results in, or before, August 2018 you will need to bring your original certificates.
  • A form of identification (i.e. either a passport, full/provisional driving licence, NI card, debit/credit card or birth certificate).
  • A completed consent form (this should have been sent to you) – the form must be completed for all students and signed by a parent/guardian if you are aged under 18.

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

If your results have not been what you were expecting, please do not worry. Our tutors and support staff are available to discuss your results and talk you through all of your options, please call 0800 074 0099 to arrange a meeting. During the enrolment process you will 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. Likewise if you have specialist course questions or want to arrange to speak to someone ahead of enroling, please call 0800 074 0099 or email

Parents/Guardians are also welcome to come in with you for enrolment to ask questions or enquire about arranging to speak to any of our tutors or support staff.

Conditional offers

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.

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).
