Enrolment & Term Dates

 

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.

You can enrol with us by coming into either of our campuses. For course starting in 2017/18, please contact our Admissions team on 0800 074 0099 to find out about the process, depending on your course type.

For September 2018 enrolment we will put on enrolment events starting from GCSE Results Day August 2018. These will be advertised on our website and if you have already applied and been offered a place with us, you will receive information in the post over the Summer. You will need to bring with you the original copy of your GCSE exam statement of results if you received them in August 2017. If you get your GCSE results in August 2018 you will need to bring your certificates. Please also bring with you:

  • A form of identification (i.e. either a passport, driving / provisional license, NI card, debit/credit card or birth certificate)
  • Some paper and a file
  • Pen

Don’t worry if you have not achieved the GCSE results that you were expecting. All of our tutors and support staff will be available for you to talk to at any time during enrolment days. You will be able to discuss your results, alternative options any questions you have about College, your course, or any other course if you have changed your mind about the one you have chosen. Remember, we are open Monday to Friday, so if you have any questions or want any help and advice, you can pop into campus, call us or drop us an email.

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.

Starting in September – Your Induction
Following enrolment for September 2018 starts, we’ll then see you back in College on the first day of your Study Programme, which will be either the first Monday or Tuesday of the Autumn Term. Exact dates will be confirmed to you on enrolment and listed on this page closer to the time.

This will be the beginning of your BLC Experience as a student, where you will undertake lots of fun induction activities, based on your course 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.
