Entry Requirements

Entry Requirements

You don't need any academic qualifications but you will need to pass a college test.

In a nutshell

If you’ve been out of education for some time but would like to get onto the Access to Higher Education course, this is the ideal way to learn how to study at a higher level in preparation.

This course is for you if...

...you want to study on one of our Access programmes

...you want to improve your numeracy and literacy skills

...you want to develop the research skills essential for Level 3 courses

What will I be doing?

The course will improve both your numeracy and literacy skills to Level 1 Maths and Level 2 English, and you’ll also cover aspects of health, sociology and psychology while developing essential research skills. You’ll be continually assessed through practical and written assessments/assignments, presentations and demonstrations portfolios of work and examinations, eventually achieving:

  • Level 2 Skills for Further Study
  • Appropriate supporting qualifications to broaden your skill set and meet the needs of industry

What is expected of me?

No academic entry qualifications are required, but you will need to pass a college test. You’ll also need a determination to do well, be keen to improve your numeracy and literacy skills and committed to full attendance.

 

What comes next?
