About the course
The Access to HE course is a one-year, full-time, Level 3 course specifically designed to enable you to develop the knowledge and study skills to progress into Higher Education.
You may already have some qualifications at GCSE, NVQ, BTEC or A level but not enough to get to university.
Through studying a combination of biology, chemistry, environmental science, geography, higher maths (pure / engineering), physics, psychology, statistics and ICT, and medical physics, our access course will equip you with the skills and knowledge to achieve your goal.
- GCSE Science, Maths and English at Grade 4 (C) or above
- Strong desire to study
- Knowledge of course required at university and the entry requirements
- Commitment to study full time for a year
- Good organisation, enthusiasm and motivation
Students wanting to progress to healthcare related degree programmes (Diagnostic Imaging, Dietetics, Radiography, Radiotherapy, Physiotherapy, Paramedic Science etc) will also need recent work experience (paid or voluntary) in a healthcare setting as there is strong competition for healthcare related degree places at university.
