Our Access to Higher Education (HE) programmes are designed for people who would like to study in HE but who left school without the usual qualifications, such as A Levels, preparing you for study at HE level.
You'll be taught study skills - learning how to approach study and the different techniques that you'll need to be a successful student. The whole package of units will have been designed to ensure that you're thoroughly equipped for studying at university.
Many people are nervous when they start an Access to HE course, particularly if they haven't been in a classroom for some time. Tutors are aware of this and take it into account in their teaching: you won't be 'thrown in at the deep end' or tested on things which you forgot years ago.
Though you can expect the course to be challenging, the whole purpose of an Access to HE course is to help you to be successful. The Access to HE course will help you to develop the knowledge, skills and confidence you need to prepare you for university, without any assumptions about what you may have done in the past.
We also offer a Pre-Access course which focuses on academic skills to enable learners to progress to Access courses.
