Enrolment FAQs

I was supposed to enrol today but I can’t make it. How do I book another appointment?

You will be contacted by the College to rebook your enrolment appointment. Alternatively, you could drop our Admissions Team an email to schedule another time. Please subject header your email, ‘Rebook my appointment’

I haven’t received any enrolment information, what do I do?

Double check your SPAM and Junk folders, if you still haven’t received anything please contact our Admissions Team to confirm your contact details: Please subject header your email, ‘I haven’t received my enrolment information’

When does College start?

Your course will start during w/c 6 September with an induction to help familiarise yourself with your course and the college. Your formal learning will begin the following week.

Will I be on my own at enrolment?

You will be in a group of 20 students max. You will receive a presentation from your delivery team, a health and safety talk and receive your College iPad and receive your Student ID. Unfortunately due to social distancing measures we do ask you to attend your enrolment appointment alone.

What happens if you haven’t received the GCSE Results you were hoping for?

Try not to worry. Still upload your GCSE’s onto our system (via your enrolment pack). Someone will be in touch to discuss your grades and course offer. You will have the opportunity to book an appointment with our Careers Advisers too.

How do I upload my GCSE Results?

Find our Enrolment Information email sent from Admissions, click the link in the email and follow the instructions.

How long does the Enrolment appointment last?

Your Enrolment appointment will be roughly 1hour 45 minutes. You will receive a presentation from your delivery team, a health and safety talk, you will be issued your College iPad and receive your Student ID.

Is there disabled parking available?

Of course! Our enrolment at Harlow College is in 3 zones this year, please contact us on 01279 868111 to arrange a parking space close to your colour zone.

If you’re enrolling at Stansted Airport College there are disabled parking spaces available.

Can I bring a parent to my enrolment appointment with me?

We are following strict social distancing guidelines to keep you and us safe so we have asked students to come alone to their enrolment appointment unless they have additional support needs. You can be dropped off at your entrance but there is no parking available at any of our College enrolment entrances or exits.
