What is enrolment?
Enrolment is the day when you officially become a student at Oaklands College, and it is the final part of the process before you join us in September. If you have made an application, you will be sent an invitation to come to the college for an enrolment appointment in August. If you have not yet applied, please browse our courses page here.
When you come to the college for your enrolment appointment, bring along your GCSE and/or results of any other qualifications with you and our friendly staff will guide you through the process.
You will leave enrolment with your ID badge and information about your first day at college.
