We have 3-4 enrolment dates a year for new students wishing to study a skill stage 2-4 course (Masters courses can be purchased at any time throughout the year). Available places are allocated on a first come first served basis and only those who have previously expressed an interest in our courses are sent details of the enrolment process. Upon registering your interest we'll send you a full course brochure and we'll keep in regular contact with exclusive news and updates, as well as details of the next enrolment date and process.

Enrolling

As an established, City & Guilds accredited distance learning centre, we accept students from anywhere in the world to study online with us, with no requirement to attend.

Because you have already expressed your interest in our courses, you can enrol today from 10am. Please note that the start date of these courses will be in November.

We will only be able to accept the first 25 people that enrol, so you will need to act quickly to avoid any disappointment. You may enrol for more than one course at a time as the places are limited to students, not the number of courses. Available places are allocated on a first come first served basis and we will not process your payment until we have confirmed that you have a place on the course. Head to our enrolment page now.
