Enrolment & Term Dates

Enrolment dates added for 2019!

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.

During enrolment, we will be checking that you have received the grades that you needed to start the Study Programme or course 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 or certificates if you have them. If you got your GCSE results in August 2018 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.

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.

  • Enrolment 2019/20 For new students starting in September 2019 you can enrol with us on the following dates at both of our Buxton and Leek campuses:

Starting in September – Your Induction

Following enrolment, we’ll then see you back in College on the first day of your Study Programme, which for full-time programmes starting in September will be either the first Monday or Tuesday of the Autumn Term. Exact dates for each Curriculum Area will be listed here.

Induction 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.
