WHAT IS ENROLMENT?

The enrolment process registers you onto the course you have chosen to study at Doncaster College.  We also ensure your personal details are correct and determine whether any fees are payable. At the end of the process you will receive a copy of your Learner Agreement and your student ID card which allows access around the college.

Enrolment for full-time courses delivered over a full academic year (September to June/July) takes place during August.

The College offers two types of enrolment for courses:

Application & Interview enrolment

Once you have been through the application process and have been offered a place you will be invited in to enrol.

If you are aged 16-18 please bring your GCSE results when you come to enrol.

If you are aged over 19; unemployed but seeking employment, enrolling onto a course to help you get back into work and receiving certain benefits you will be eligible to have your fees paid.  Please see the table below for the list of benefits we accept.
