ENROLMENT 2022

How to Enrol at the Fashion Retail Academy

You’ll complete your enrolment to the Fashion Retail Academy online. You can only enrol if you hold an offer to study one of our courses for the new academic year in September 2022.  

The enrolment process is slightly different depending on whether you hold an unconditional or conditional offer. If you don’t know which option is for you, please check your offer letter which will tell you the course you’ve applied for and the type of offer you're holding. 

If you have any questions about the enrolment process or would like to reset your account, please contact us on 0300 247 0039 or info@fra.ac.uk 

If you have an unconditional offer, you qualify for priority enrolment. You’ll receive an email with instructions for completing your enrolment a few weeks before enrolment opens.


When do I enrol? 

Unconditional enrolment is open from 4 to 8 July 2022. When enrolment opens, we’ll send you an email containing a link to enrol on our FRA portal.  

If you don’t enrol by the deadline, you could lose your place at the Fashion Retail Academy. 

What do I need to enrol? 

You’ll need to give us photographs or scans of: 

  • Original exam certificates of your official result notification (e.g. GCSEs, A or AS Levels, GNVQs, BTEC National Diploma or other similar qualifications) 
  • Proof of your current address e.g. A recent utility bill, bank statement (within the last three months), National Insurance letter etc.
  • Proof of I.D – a Passport* or birth certificate with additional photo ID (such as a driving licence) 
  • Passport-style photograph. This must be a headshot without filters or emoji against a plain background. This will be used for your FRA pass.  

*We do not store your passport information after we have verified your identity 

How long will it take to enrol? 

If you have all the information you need to hand, it should take you around 15-20 minutes to enrol. 

What happens if I apply/receive an offer after the enrolment date? 

If you apply during or after the unconditional enrolment period, we’ll review your application and contact you with next steps.  

If we still have places available on your chosen course and you meet the entry criteria, you’ll be able to enrol.  

What happens if I accept my offer after online enrolment has closed? 

If we still have spaces available, we’ll send you an email inviting you to enrol. You’ll need to complete your enrolment within two working days, or you could lose your place.

If you have applied for student loan, this will not be released until you have successfully enrolled.

What happens after enrolment? 

After you have completed online enrolment, we will email you inviting you to our Freshers Week!
