What does Open Enrolment Mean?

Open Enrolment

So the phrase ‘open enrolment’ might not mean much to many people, especially people who haven’t studied in a while. As I’m sure you are aware, a lot of schools, colleges and universities have set requirements for students to be accepted onto courses they offer. It can be a combination of qualifications such as GCSEs and A-Levels or A-Levels and Diplomas. Either way, if you don’t have the qualifications they want, you won’t be accepted onto the course.

Oxford Learning College want to help people get to where they want to be, so we offer open enrolment on all our courses to try and help people achieve their goals. So for example, if you needed an A-Level in Chemistry, but didn’t do GCSE Chemistry at school, most colleges wouldn’t allow you to study A-Level Chemistry, which would put a stop to your dream career right there and then unless you studied GCSE Chemistry first and then progressed onto the A-Level.

To enrol onto courses with Oxford Learning College, all that we ask is you’re at least 16 years of age (or have parental consent to study with us), a good understanding of English and some experience of secondary education. If you can say yes to all three of these, then you are free to enrol and start studying with the college right away.


So how does this help you?

Well, if you want to go to university and they require you have 3 A-Levels in certain subjects and you only have 2, then you would be free to enrol with our College to get that extra needed A-Level.

Or maybe, you got your GCSEs and didn’t quite get the grades you need to be accepted to college, so you want to retake them to get that chance.  You can enrol with Oxford Learning College easily and quickly and start studying right away to achieve your goals.


When should you enrol?

As we offer open enrolment and don’t have term times, you are free to enrol whenever suits you. However, we do always advise students to enrol sooner rather than later to make sure you have enough time to get your studying done before the exam season starts.
