Due to coronavirus, enrolment – when you provide evidence of qualifications and sign up for your course – this year will be online. We have sent 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. If you have not met the maths and/or English entry criteria please still enrol and someone will be in touch with you to discuss alternative course/level options.
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. We have extended the enrolment period beyond Friday 28 August, so you can still enrol for most courses in the coming weeks. However courses may close if all of the places are taken so you are advised to enrol as early as you can.
Do we have the correct contact information for you?
We have sent out information by post, email and text to enable you to enrol.

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 Learner Support 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. Applications to the Learner Support Funds are processed on a first come, first served basis. We are processing these as quickly as possible, but it is taking us approximately 2 to 3 weeks from receiving the application to completing it. When you have been assessed you will receive a letter to your home address.
If your fees are over £150 and you have ticked to pay your fees in instalments. You will need to complete the Direct Debit form and will be contacted by a member of the enrolment staff on what you need to do next.
I can't complete my enrolment online - what can I do?
If you can’t complete your enrolment independently at home because you do not have access to a laptop, computer or mobile, or do not have wifi or enough data to complete your enrolment online, or if you have a disability, learning difficulty or health problem, or English is not your first language and you require support to complete the enrolment you can book a ticket to come into one of our campuses to get support to enrol.

How do I apply for an Advanced 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.
Details to do this were posted out 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?
You will be given a date and time to come into College for your induction once your place is confirmed. Places should be confirmed by Friday 4 September* (for people who have previously been sent an offer letter and invited to enrol). A member of curriculum staff will will be in touch you about your induction. This could be by post, phone or email. Induction are from Tuesday 1 September to Friday 18 September.
Full timetables will be given at induction. Kit lists will be either sent to you by email prior to your induction, or given out at the induction. You will also be given your ID badge at induction. You will get 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 into college when you are timetabled to do so, to help us maintain social distancing and keep everyone safe.
