Enrolling on courses starting in September 2021

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 23rd July 2021, you should have received or will receive an email 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 6th 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.

Some 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. 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.

All of our 19+ students will be required to come onto campus so the team can support you with any fee arrangements and childcare applications for student finance.

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 haven’t received this yet or haven’t already applied to the College, don’t worry, go to our Join us in September page for more information.

Frequently asked questions

I haven’t got the results I expected or need. What should I do?

If you’d like some advice on what your options are, please call 0115 9 100 100 where our team will book you an appointment to speak to a Careers Advisor.

Alternatively you can apply for a course in the area that you think you would like to study. Once you have applied, you will be asked to book an appointment for one of the late enrolment sessions via your online college account, where you can talk to one of the faculty teachers.

You will receive an email confirming your appointment, so make sure you check your inbox! You must only attend at the time we have specified. This is because we can only have certain numbers of people on campus at any one time due to Covid 19.
