The College offers three types of courses:

  1. Direct enrolment

  2. Courses requiring an interview

  3. Courses requiring a formal application and interview

Please note that ALL learners under 19 years old MUST have an interview

Direct enrolment

For courses marked with the symbol on the right, you can enrol by post, in person or online. Usually if places are available, and once payment has been received, you will be accepted automatically.

Courses requiring an interview

Reading, Writing, Maths, ESOL and Foreign Languages courses, as well as those marked with the symbol on the right, require an interview to ensure that you are placed in the correct level.

Please come along to one of our Advice and Guidance sessions, see our session dates and times.

Courses requiring a formal application and interview

Courses marked with the symbol on the right are usually longer term, lead to a recognised qualification, require more commitment and possibly evidence of prior learning. To be accepted on one of these courses you must pass an interview with the Curriculum Leader or Course Tutor.

You cannot enrol or pay for these courses until you have attended an interview. We will contact you to arrange an interview time and date where our staff will help you enrol on the course that best suits your needs.

Please include the following with your form:

  • A separate cheque or postal order for each course.

  • Ensure cheques have a valid cheque guarantee card number and expiry date written on the back of the cheque.

  • Please make cheques or postal orders payable to Kensington and Chelsea College

  • Do not forget to enclose a copy of proof of residency or proof of concessionary benefit (no more than 3 months old, if applicable).

Failure to follow these instructions could result in a delay in processing your form and loss of place on your course.

To enrol or apply in person

You may enrol or apply in person at any of our centres where a reception service is provided during reception opening times.

Please make sure you have all the relevant documentary evidence (if applicable) with you when you enrol as failure to prove concessionary benefit at the time of enrolment (payment) will result in a delay in processing your form and may result in you losing your place on the course. You will also be required to bring along a form of ID to enrol. (see Enrolment checklist for acceptable forms of ID)

How do I confirm my place on a course?

Your place is only confirmed when you pay your fees and are given a receipt. Some courses are very popular and fill up quickly so please ensure you enrol early if possible.
