Access programmes are intensive courses designed for mature students who wish to progress to university. They have been developed to enable students to gain the skills and knowledge to cope with the academic demands of Higher Education.

Traditionally, universities were quite strict on what they accepted as adequate qualifications to meet the entry requirements of their nursing degrees. This would limit many would-be students from pursuing higher education to reach their career goals. Now, many more qualifications are accepted as adequate preparation for learners going into higher-level study. So, if you don’t have GCSEs or A Levels, all is not lost. Many universities now welcome students who have other qualifications like Access to Higher Education Diplomas.

Here are some of the modules you'll cover, you will also complete modules that focus on giving you the study skills for university, which is perfect for those who have been out of education for some time.
