STEP 1

Submitting your exam results

Your examination results will be available from your school/college on Thursday 20th August.

1. Scan or take a photo of your results sheet.

2. Email this to enrol@wqe.ac.uk with the subject of the email being “student number Results” e.g. “204567 Results”. You’ll find your student number on your letter and on the D1 form.

3. You’ll also need to send evidence of any results you’ve already achieved – find your certificates/results slips before results day.

STEP 2

Appointment with your Enrolment Advisor

After receiving your results, we will contact you to provide a telephone enrolment appointment date and time.

An Enrolment Advisor will contact you to discuss your results and your planned programme of study. Don’t worry if you’ve changed your mind about a subject or your results are not what you expected, your Enrolment Advisor will be able to help you.

STEP 3

Subject advice

You may need advice from a subject specialist. Your Enrolment Advisor will be able to book an appointment for you using Microsoft Teams.

You’ll receive an email confirming the appointment time and a link for you to click to join the call. Some students might need to undertake an assessment to check their suitability for a course; if this is something you need to do your Enrolment Advisor will be able to explain this and make an appointment for you.

STEP 4

Confirming your programme

When you’ve had all the advice you need, you will agree with your Enrolment Advisor the courses that you are enrolling for.

We’ll send you an Enrolment Agreement by email which you’ll need to check and respond to confirm your enrolment.

STEP 5

Completing your enrolment

Once we have received your Enrolment Agreement back, we will process your enrolment and you’ll receive a further email to confirm you are now a WQE student. This will also include details of:

  • How to access Induction Activities for your courses
  • Information about Orientation
  • Virtual social rooms that will help you get to know other students

That’s it! Don’t worry if this sounds confusing at first, your Enrolment Advisor will guide you through the whole process and will make sure you understand what is required at each step along the way.
