A Fashionable Reminder!!

Well that’s us another week closer to the start of the new academic year (only 2 weeks to go) and we are ready for meeting all our new and returning students. We have a couple of good news items for you this week, so let’s get started.


Enrolment Reminder

Just a quick reminder that Full and Part Time enrolment will start on Tuesday the 11th of August and will run until Friday the 21st of August at all of our campuses. Enrolment sessions will be held at Springburn on all days; sessions at the other four campuses will be timetabled in for different days throughout the two weeks.

You should have received (or be about to receive) letters telling you what campus to attend and what time to go. Remember not to worry if you are asked to attend enrolment at a different campus to what you think. Where the same course is being delivered in more than one location, the applicants will be invited into one campus. You will be told at enrolment what campus you will be attending.

In case you still aren’t sure of where you are going we have placed schedules below for all Access, City & Guilds, HNC, HND, NC and NQ courses.

We’ll post these out to Facebook and Twitter again at the beginning of next week and you can get downloadable PDF versions from our Course Enrolment page on the website.

If you have any questions or concerns about the details you have then please email enrolment@glasgowkelvin.ac.uk

Good Luck on the day and we hope you have an enjoyable experience with us over the next year.
