How And When To Enrol 19+
Whichever type of course you’re studying, when the start date is approaching we’ll send you a letter that will give you all the details you need about enrolling with us, including a date and time.
Everyone at The Manchester College has been working hard to ensure that we make your enrolment experience as simple and as easy as possible whilst keeping both you and our staff as safe as possible.
How to enrol
Enrol in person at one of our campuses.
All of our campuses are open for enrolment on a drop-in, first come first served basis where you will be able to enrol in person with a member of our team.
To enrol in person, you should attend the campus where you will be studying:
- Monday (10.00am – 3.30pm)
- Tuesday (10.00am – 3.30pm)
- Wednesday (10.00am – 3.30pm)
- Thursday (10.00am – 3.30pm)
- Friday (10.00am – 3.30pm)
When enrolling on campus please note:
- Do not bring along any family members (including children) with you to the campus. If you need support to attend the College to enrol, then you must call Course Enquiries to pre-arrange your visits and we know the reasons for bringing someone with you.
- To maintain safe numbers on campus we will be asking people to queue outside. In the event of high demand queue times could be long so please consider bringing an umbrella/coat.
- We are looking to maintain the two-metre social distancing criteria and so you will not be expected to wear a face mask, however, you can choose to wear one if you wish to.
- If you are considered to be clinically or extremely clinically vulnerable for Coronavirus, please contact Course Enquiries before making any visit to a college campus.
The exact process of how you enrol may differ slightly depending on the type of course you’re about to start, so take a look below to find out more and to understand how you can enrol with us this year.
A welcoming learning environment
Everyone at the College has been working hard to ensure that when your course starts you will receive a great college experience in an environment that is welcoming and puts your health and safety first.
To achieve this, we are making some alterations to our campuses that will make it possible to maintain social distancing and some changes to the College timetable, including staggered start times, to ensure the number of people on campus at any one time is kept to a safe level.
In addition to this, from September we will be offering a blended approach to your studies. This will see you attend campus for parts of your timetable while other parts of your course will be delivered by a tutor online. Once you have enrolled, you will receive your timetable.
Don’t worry, we know there is quite a lot to take in - once you have enrolled, we will be sharing the key messages with you over the coming weeks. So, whilst things may look and feel slightly different, the excellent teaching, learning and support will remain the same.
