How to enrol

If you've already applied for a course

Once you've applied to study with us and have been successful with an offer of a place, you'll receive a letter telling you when and where to come to enrol. This usually happens two months before the start of your course.

If you haven't received your letter, can't find it or have missed your appointment, contact the Course Information Team on 020 7700 9200 or email onlineapps@candi.ac.uk.

If you haven't applied for a course

For most of our courses starting in September, you'll need to apply before June. If you haven't applied by June, you'll need to come and enrol in person at the Centre where your chosen course is run. Come to one of our enrolment sessions and our staff will help you choose a course that suits you.
