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 enrol in August or September. Use our course search to find out more and register your interest in the course you want to study.
