Proof of enrolment
After completing your enrolment, you will receive two copies of your proof of enrolment per year. You can use these for organisations (e.g. insurance company, bank) that ask for this information. If you require an extra proof of enrolment, you may apply for this via the website of ESSC. An extra proof of enrolment is provided free of charge. It is not possible to get one at the ESSC desk.
Please note: the proof of enrolment does not mention the fact that you are attending a part-time study programme. It always uses the phrase ''full time student''. In our registration system it will be mentioned whether you are a student or not, and whether you are taking part in a part-time or fulltime study programme.
