How to Enrol on a Course

Joining a course at Thurrock Adult Community College

Search Find a Course and click on 'Enrol Now' or 'Enrolment Information' to book a course, assessment or register for a waiting list.

You will need to open or login to your account. Previous learners can email us on to reset their password.

You will then be enrolled or, for qualification courses, receive further information about your pre-course assessment (this is to make sure you are on the right course, pay the correct fee, know about any financial support and understand course requirements or discuss any support required). Confirmation of your course will be sent to your email address.

We continue to keep our fees as low as possible, thanks to funding from the ESFA. Prices can be found against each course listing, including any fee remissions or reductions available.

If you are unable to enrol online, email our Learner Services team on or call 01375 372476 during opening hours.
