Set to attend university in September, Sean Dunn talks about what it’s like to be a student at Loughborough College and how the Access to HE programme has prepared him for degree level study.
Access to Higher Education Courses
Our Access courses have been specifically designed for those individuals (19+) who want to return to their studies and gain the necessary qualifications for progression into higher education. As an institution, we welcome diversity amongst our student body and we seek to encourage learners of all ages to enrol with us regardless of their level of academic discipline.
Allowing you to choose the programme that is most convenient for you, our courses can be studied either full-time (one year) or part-time (two or three years) and tuition fees are calculated accordingly. Loughborough College aims to equip you with the necessary skills for further progression and many of our Access students achieve a high level of success in advanced level qualifications. Loughborough College's Access to HE courses are validated by Cambridge Access Validating Agency (CAVA).
Access courses are usually timetabled for two whole days a week, (for example 9.15am - 4.15pm, Tuesday and Wednesday). This timetable allows students to more easily arrange childcare, work arrangements and other commitments. You may be able to study GCSE Maths on a further day subject to satisfactory completion of a Maths diagnostic test.

Chibuzo Uchenna Akuma chose to study the Access to Higher Education course in Nursing and Midwifery after hearing from a past student about the quality of support given by tutors at the College. She also felt that the timetable suited her with it being only 2 days a week.
