Important updates for the service.

It's time to submit your postgraduate courses for English and Welsh students

It's time to submit your postgraduate master's and doctoral courses for English and Welsh students on our Courses Management Service (CMS). You should complete your course submission by Friday 24 May 2024.

Attendance and registration reminder

Please prioritise any outstanding registration or attendance confirmations for 2023/24 courses. You should follow up all registrations with an appropriate attendance confirmation. You should also submit confirmations of non-attendance and any change of circumstance notifications as soon as you know about them. This will help us to maintain accurate information on student accounts. It will also help us to minimise and recover any tuition fee overpayments. You can find more guidance on this below.

LLE Planning and Awareness Programme – Registration open

Registration is now open for the Lifelong Learning Entitlement Planning and Awareness Programme. Together, SLC and DfE will deliver this programme to share key messages with you, outline policy and business requirements, and explore the implementation timescales.
