We have set the September Starts page up for all students progressing to study with us in September.

You could be coming to us straight from school, transferring from another College or you might be a current student moving up to a new Level or programme of study.

On this page you will find all of the pre-College work you will need to complete prior to enrolling with us at the end of August and starting with us in September. This work can be completed as a handwritten piece of work, or on a computer and then printed out or emailed to us. Whatever option is best for you.

You will find information for each subject area, with a link to download or view the tasks.

If you need further assistance, regarding access, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us. You can either contact the subject area contact directly as listed on each of the sections, or contact our main switchboard 01302 553553 or infocentre@don.ac.uk.
