Why complete registration?
It is important to register for the course to secure your place and activate your student ID number. Your ID number will provide you with the ability to access your student portal page, which we call My D&A. This is where you will view your timetable, record an absence and find out more about what college life has to offer.

Once the registration process is completed and you have provided us with a valid photograph we will order your NEC card. You will receive an email to let you know that your card is ready to collect from your local Learning Resources Centre. 

Have you completed your funding application?
If not, please do so as soon as possible to ensure your funding is in place for the start of your course. Click here to identify where you apply.

Please check out our induction site for all the information you need to help you step closer to becoming a student (including your timetable and a whole lot more).
