Due to social distancing requirements at enrolment, if you are coming in to a campus to enrol in person you may need to queue to access the building. We are asking people to please take the necessary measures to prepare for the changing weather conditions. We would also ask that if you have been given a specific enrolment time to please arrive in good time for that time slot.

Enrolment for courses starting this September is soon to be underway and we are making the process as safe as possible for you and our staff.

If you applied to the college and received an offer of a place from us before August 14th 2020, you should have received or will receive a letter inviting you to a specific enrolment session so that you can get fully enrolled as a Nottingham College student!

If you received an offer of a place on a course from us but no enrolment letter by the 16th August, please get in touch with us on 0115 9 100 100.

All 16 – 18 year old students and some 19+ students will be required to complete an online assessment of English and Maths after which you will be asked to log onto your application account and check your personal details are correct.

16 – 18 year old students will be enrolled virtually through an online Microsoft Teams appointment with a course tutor, you can find out more about this in our 16-18 Enrolling Online guide. Our 19+ students will be required to come onto campus. Some of our 16 – 18 year old students who need a bit more support will be invited onto campus, but we are limiting how many people we have on campus at any one time to keep everyone safe due to Covid 19. More specific information about your personal enrolment appointment will be provided with your enrolment invitation so please read this carefully.

Shortly after you receive your enrolment invitation letter, we will email you to ask you to begin your enrolment process through your application account, so keep checking your email inbox. By completing the get ready for college pages, it will help speed up the process on the day of your enrolment.

If you’d like some advice on what your options are, we suggest that you book a careers adviser call back through our application portal here.
