New College Students
Welcome to UCB
Welcome to all new college students who are joining us in September 2018.
The information below will help you prepare for enrolment and the start of your course.
If you have been offered a place at UCB, you will be sent an online registration email during the summer. You are asked to register online before your official enrolment date so that all your personal information is accurate and up-to-date before you attend, and that you have had time to read any terms and conditions or policies and privacy statements. This will mean that the actual enrolment day will run smoothly.
Enrolment starts in August as soon as the GCSE results are released. Each course has a specific enrolment day and time.
Enrolment for new students
How will I know when to attend?
We will send you an email and a text message to confirm the date and time of your enrolment, you will also receive a welcome pack in the post, which will contain all of your course-specific information.
We have a lot of courses, so we have separate enrolment sessions for each course. We allocate appointment times to try and reduce your waiting time, so please try and stick to your appointment, wherever possible.
