Enrolment - what you need to enrol online

The online enrolment process

To be able to enrol with City of Westminster College, we will need you to complete our online enrolment form and upload photos or scans of documents and files to ensure you are able to study with us. 

Closer to the start date of our main enrolment period, you will be emailed a link to our secure online enrolment form which you will need to complete. As you have already completed our online application form, we already have some of your details, which will be pre-populated onto the enrolment form, which you can confirm as correct or amend if they have changed. 

Please ensure that all your details are correct as we will communicate through email, phone and text if we have any questions about your completed enrolment form.

The documents and files which are required for the online enrolment are as follows:

Proof of Identification   

We will need to see some proof of identification from the following list of acceptable documents.

UK/EU Passport 
Full Photo Driving Licence  
National Insurance Card 
UK/EU ID Card or other form of national identification 
Full Birth Certificate (UK/EEA Nationals)
Non-EU Passport showing a valid visa
A recent Solicitor's letter or any other document you hold regarding your residency status.


A photo is required for your college ID card. This photo must be similar to the photo you would use for your passport, with a plain background and your head fully within the shot. Any photos submitted which do not meet the criteria may result in a delay to your enrolment.

Previous Qualifications

We will need to see your previous qualifications to ensure that you have met the entry criteria for your chosen course. We would need to see evidence of exam results and any certificates you may have.

If you are over the age of 19 and want to study a funded course which is level 2 or below, some of our courses may be free to you based on the qualifications you already have. Please note that some of our level 2 courses do not qualify as a full level 2 and therefore cannot be fully fee remitted.

If you are employed

If you are over the age of 19 and are employed, living in London and earn less than £20,962 annually, and want to study a funded course which is level 2 or below, you may be able eligible to have your fees remitted. We would require you to upload evidence of your last 3 payslips which are dated within the last 3 months and/or a contract of employment stating your gross annual salary.

If you are employed and your employer is paying the fees for your course, you will need to upload a letter from your employer on company headed paper, confirming that they are paying for your course, the amount that will be paid, confirmation of your name and that has your employers address and a purchase order number on it where applicable. Please note that without this letter you may be liable for the payment of any fees.

If you are unemployed

If you are over the age of 19, unemployed and want to study a funded course which is level 2 or below, we will need to see evidence of any benefits you may be on to see if you are eligible to have your fees remitted. We would require you to upload evidence of the benefits you are claiming, and the document must be dated within 3 months of the start of your course. 

All individuals will be assessed for fee exemption/remission based on evidence supplied. 

Once you have met the course entry criteria and all your evidence has been checked, you will be enrolled onto the course. If your results aren’t what you expected, please don't worry, our initial advice and guidance team will help to do our best to find the course most appropriate for your current level, and your future goals.

What if my course is full?

If the course you wish to enrol onto is full, we will contact you where you can opt to join a waiting list for that course or choose to speak to our initial advice and guidance team to see if another course is available. 

You will then receive an email containing documents for your signature to be added electronically, followed shortly by confirmation of your start date and course joining instructions.
