Due to coronavirus, enrolment – when you provide evidence of qualifications and sign up for your course – this year will be online. During the summer, we will send information out to everyone who has applied and accepted an offer, with details of how you should enrol and what you will need to do this.
All offers of a place at the college are still valid – even if you were unable to attend a Welcome Event because our buildings were closed. You do need to accept your place to secure it. You can accept your place here or by emailing your full name, reference number, and date of birth to us.
Do not come into the College unless you are invited in.
When does enrolment begin?
Enrolment will begin on Thursday 20 August 2020.
Do we have the correct contact information for you?
We will send you details to register online to enrol. These will be sent to you by post, email and text so it’s important that we have the correct contact information on record. If you have a new postal address, email address and/or phone number please let us know by filling in the form at the bottom of this page.
Letters will be sent out week commencing Monday 10 August.
Texts and emails will be sent week commencing Monday 17 August.
What happens if I don’t get the GCSE grades I was predicted?
Even if you haven’t got the grades which you were predicted you may still enrol. Depending on your grades you may be able to continue on the course you had applied for. Alternatively we may suggest a different course. Careers advisors will be available if you need more detailed advice.
How can I pay for my course and material fees?
If you have to pay for your course you can pay online when you complete your online registration. If you have successfully applied for an Advanced Learner Loan you should upload your letter when your enrol. If you are an adult on a low income or claiming benefits may be eligible for free course fees. We have two funds (one for 16-18 year olds and one for people aged 19 and over) to help with the costs of travel to and from college, essential kit, meals at college and childcare
How do I apply for an Advance Learner Loan?
If you already have a level 3 qualification you may be able to apply for an Advanced Learner Loan to cover part of the whole cost of your course fees. You may also be able to apply for money from the Advanced Learner Loan Bursary if you need help with costs for things such as childcare, trips or travel for your course.
You will need details that are being posted out to you from week commencing 8 June to apply.
I’ve not applied for a course can I still enrol?
If you have not already applied to study at Leicester College you will not be able to enrol. You should first look at our courses and make an application. Please do this as soon as possible so that you can still be invited to enrol.
What happens if I make a late application?
Application received up to and including 19 August 2020 will be processed as quickly as possible and offers letters will be sent out, along with details about how to accept a place and enrol. Applications received from Thursday 20 August 2020 will be held until the majority of enrolment has been completed. We will review these late applications from 31 August onwards, and where we still have places available on the course you have applied for we will make an offer of a place by 18 September. If a course is full and we are unable to offer a place we will let you know this by 11 September.
I’m not sure what I want to do. Can I get some advice?
We have a team of specialist and independent careers advisors who can talk to you about your options and help you progress successfully into further or higher education, employment or training. You don’t have to be a student to speak to our careers advisors and the service is offered to people of all ages.
What happens after enrolment?
When you have enrolled you will be sent an induction timetable, your ID badge, free access to Office 365 (which gives you an email address, a TB of storage and five downloads including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote). Please only come in to college when you are timetabled to do so, to help us maintain social distancing and keep everyone safe.
