Enrolment for 2020 entry - important update
A change to our new student enrolment and start of teaching for 2020
As you will be aware a number of local areas including Kirklees and Calderdale are currently areas of concern, and are subject to additional measures. This means that following comprehensive risk assessments, we have taken the decision to move our new student enrolment appointments to the period Tuesday 1st September to Friday 4th September.
We have sent you a letter with more information about this, our rationale and when your new appointment is.
As our new students, your teaching now starts on Friday 11th September.
As previously notified, our teaching will start with a flipped learning timetable (with the majority of your lessons on site), with a clear intention to increase this to full time learning on site, as soon as it is safer to do so. When you enrol and receive your final timetable on Thursday 10th September at 2pm, you will be able to see what this looks like for you.
We also would like to congratulate our new incoming year 12 on your fantastic GCSE results! We would also like to confirm that any prospective student who accepted their place, and who meets the entry criteria for the courses that they were offered, will have a place at HNC.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you soon!
Internal Level 1 and Level 2 enrolment
All students who are progressing from level 1 and level 2 study programmes will be automatically enrolled and your timetable will be available on Cedar on Thursday 10th September at 2pm and your teaching will start on Friday 11th September. As previously notified, our teaching will start with a flipped learning timetable (with the majority of your lessons on site), with a clear intention to increase this to full time learning on site, as soon as it is safer to do so. When you enrol and receive your final timetable on Thursday 10th September at 2pm, you will be able to see what this looks like for you.
We are looking forward to welcoming you back!
Year 13 enrolment

We are looking forward to welcoming you back!
The wearing of face coverings at HNC
Following the Government announcement on Tuesday 25th August, the wearing of face masks at Huddersfield New College will be optional in classrooms but mandatory when moving between classrooms, and in communal areas such as the LRC and Study Centre, unless a 2 metre social distance can be respected in these communal areas. Please click here to read more about this.

Uploading your photo for your membership badge
If you accepted your place within the deadline, we have sent you a revised letter to let you know when your changed enrolment appointment is. We are currently planning for your enrolment to safely take place on campus, but please be aware that we are monitoring the local and national situation and if this plan needs to change to a remote enrolment, we will be in contact with you.
Enrolment appointment availability is extremely limited and unless there are extenuating circumstances why you cannot make this appointment, we may not be able to offer an alternative. If this is the case, please email the Student Services team as soon as possible. If you do request an appointment outside our enrolment period, we cannot guarantee that your first choice courses will be available.
It is important that you bring with you a printed copy of your examination results, including any you sat in previous years. Without a complete set of formal results, we will not be able to enrol you.
Our website has published entry criteria, both general and subject specific, and we very much hope that you achieve these. If however, your GCSE results are not quite as expected on GCSE results day, and you do not meet this entry criteria, please note the following change to previously published information. There will be no GCSE surgery as given that the number of students who will need this surgery is an unknown, we cannot be confident that will be able to accommodate these and respect social distancing measures, to keep both students and staff alike Covid-19 secure.
We know that if you do not meet the entry criteria for your proposed study programme, you will be worried about your place at the College, and would probably have taken advantage of this GCSE surgery. Our advice to you instead is to attend your scheduled enrolment appointment, and to be reassured that in waiting for this enrolment appointment, you will not be disadvantaged in any way, as all decisions about changes to agreed study programmes, for a variety of reasons, including not meeting the entry criteria for all/some elements of your study programme, are made at the end of the entire enrolment period on Wednesday 9th September.
You will automatically become a member of the National Union of Students when you enrol. If you would like an 'NUS Extra' card that gives you a wide range of discounts and special offers, you need to apply directly to the NUS. Find out more about the NUS Extra Card here.
16-19 Bursary Fund - financial support
There is a range of assistance that you may apply for to help you during your time at College, including the option to apply for the 16-19 Bursary Fund. If you would like to read more about the bursary fund and download an application form, please click here. A bursary helpdesk will be available during enrolment. Please note that we cannot accept applications until you have enrolled with HNC for 2020.
