EntryApplicants should be aged 19 plus by the 31st August prior to starting the course.
You will need to have GCSE English and maths at grade 4/C or above. In exceptional circumstances we will consider applicants who have Level 2 functional skills maths. Consideration will be given to applicants who do not have maths GCSE as it may be possible (subject to pre-entry assessment) to study one GCSE alongside the Access course.
Very good communication skills are essential for this course, particularly in written English, as extended essays, controlled assessments and presentations are the main forms of assessment.
Following the successful completion of an Access course, you will have the
option of either progressing to Higher Education or moving into full-time
employment. Should you choose to
progress to Higher Education, we’ll provide you with information, advice and guidance to help you apply for a degree that meets your needs and career aspirations.
