Welcome to the South Essex College HE Enrolment and Induction page. Any announcements or updates will appear on here first so please check in from time to time.

Your first few weeks at South Essex College are very important. Enrolment and induction is where you will meet the course team and find out more about your course.

Returning Students

If you are returning to your studies after an authorised period of intermission, you will be contacted by the college and invited to re-enrol onto your programme.


All new HE students are required to attend an induction. At induction you will be introduced to your Programme Handbook and advised of your weekly class schedule.

Progressing Students

If you are a current student who is progressing from one year to the next, you will be required to re-enrol online via the HE Results page. Please speak to Programme Leaders for further advice on how and when you can do this.

2019/20: Advice for Enrolling Students

All new students MUST be enrolled onto their programme before they can attend any induction activities or timetabled teaching sessions.

You must be able to provide proof of ID and evidence that you meet ALL academic entry requirements for your chosen programme at enrolment. Failure to do so will delay your enrolment. Please use the following check list to help you prepare:



    UK National students must have:

    • Valid passport

    If you do not hold a valid passport we will accept a full birth certificate together with one piece of photo ID from the list below:

    • Drivers Licence (photo card)
    • A valid proof of age ID/Citizen card
    • An Old college card
    • HM Forces ID card

    EU students must have:

    • Valid passport or National Photo Identity Card
    We cannot enrol you without these documents.
  • ACADEMIC CONDITIONS: Original exaction certificates, including Level 2 English Language and maths, if applicable (GCSE or Functional Skills/adult numeracy/literacy). Results slips will be accepted if you have not yet received certificates for qualifications completed in 2018/19 academic year. Photocopies will not be accepted.
  • FINANCE: all correspondence received from Student Finance England (SFE), specifically the sheet entitled ‘University or College Payment Advice’ (with barcode). If you do not currently have this document it is essential that you speak to us at enrolment about how to provide this at a later date.
  • OTHER ACADEMIC EVIDENCE: any transcripts relating to previous higher education programmes (if you already possess a higher education qualification you will need to have contacted Student Finance England to ensure they will support you with repeat funding please see attached eligibility sheet).
  • If you are enrolling onto a part-time Higher Education course and your employer is sponsoring you, you will need to bring a letter from your employer to confirm that they wish to be invoiced for the tuition fees, or alternatively a cheque from them for the full amount.

*Without these important documents you will not become a fully enrolled student at the College and this will affect your access to the University resources.

Important Information about Student Visas and Immigration Status

The College is required to comply with the requirements of the UK Home Office (Visas and Immigration) regulations. You will need to provide your passport, your original qualification certificates and evidence of your immigration status when you come to the College to complete your enrolment if you are:

  • A Tier 4 sponsored student
  • Studying on a short term study visa
  • A non-UK/EU or EEA national

If you are required to register with the police you must also bring your Police Registration Certificate. The College is required to retain copies of these documents.
