When and where do I go to enrol?
You will be sent an enrolment letter. It will tell you the name of the campus you need to go to.
There is a College campus map on the back of the letter or you can view our campuses page.
What should I bring with me?
• Your personalised enrolment form (16-18 year olds only).
• Your official exam results and any relevant certificates you have.
• A pen.
• Details of an emergency contact, i.e. parent/carer and their telephone number and email address.
• Any other documents listed in your letter.
What happens at enrolment?
Enrolment is in three easy steps:
Step 1 – See a tutor and discuss your course, check your qualification results and enrolment paperwork. The tutor will tell you when your course starts and give you a timetable.
Step 2 – Go to the enrolment workstation where your details will be updated on the College computer system.
Step 3 – Have your photograph taken and get your student ID card.
What do I do if I am paying for my course?
You will need to bring:
• Proof of any benefits you receive e.g. award notice or official letter and National Insurance Number.
• Proof of earnings, such as your most recent pay slip. If you are working and earn less than £20,000 per year you may be eligible for a discount on selected courses.
• A letter or payment from your employer or sponsor if they are paying for your course.
For further information visit the paying for your course page.
Why do I need a student card?
Barnsley College is committed to keeping you safe throughout your time with us. You will be issued with a student card which will give you access to the buildings and must be worn at all times. Everyone who comes in and out of the building has an ID card so we always know who is on College premises.
You will need your card for printing and photocopying too.
How do I get to College when I start?
The College runs free return bus services from certain areas. For further information visit the student travel page.
