Enrolment is an essential part of joining the college. During the event, we will sit with you and go through all of their details, including any applicable kit costs and other information.

What to Expect

Please be aware that the enrolment process can take some time, so set yourself aside at least an hour.

First job, please check-in at the welcome desk in the Atrium. When you enter the building, you'll see our friendly team standing at a desk with a load of folders in front of it. Go up to them, say hi, give them your name, and they'll pull out a folder with all your details in it!*

*Unless you haven't applied already previously, in which case it's not a problem, but we'll need you to fill in some details for us when you come and see us.

Once you've got your folder, you'll be off to see a member of our teaching team. Chat done. Now you'll need to get officially enrolled. Just sit tight and wait for your name to be called. When you're called, you'll sit with one of our enrolment team. This is the part where you actually sign up for the course you want to do. Our team will also go through your financial situation with you to see if you get any financial support for college on things like kit you'll need for your course, as well as free school meals. Once all that's done and you've signed on the dotted line, you'll officially be an East Durham College student.

...but wait! There's one more station to go before you leave. We just need to quickly take your photo for your student ID and bus pass. Once that's done, you're all sorted and free to go!

Like we said before it can all take a bit of time depending on how busy we are on the day, so please be patient and we'll get you enrolled as soon as we can.

Already Applied?

If you have already applied to East Durham College and been in for an interview with one of our course lecturers, we will write to you with a date/time of your appointment for enrolment.

Not Yet Applied?

You do not need to have previously applied to East Durham College to enrol.

If you haven't yet applied to the college, simply turn up at the appropriate enrolment event and we will be able to sort everything out from there.
