Access to Higher Education
BMet offers a wide range of Access courses to higher education. Access courses are aimed at adults aged 19 and over who have a career in mind that is likely to require university level study. Access courses develop study skills, build confidence and allow you to experience different subject areas within your chosen area of study, to prepare you for university.
Access courses are ideal if you missed out on an opportunity to study previously. Each year, hundreds of our learners gain entry to some of the UK’s most prestigious universities, including local institutions like Warwick, Aston and Birmingham.
What’s more, if you’re aged 19 or over you can apply to the government for an Advanced Learner Loan. This loan does not have to be paid back if you then go onto successfully complete a degree. Click here for more info on Advanced Learner Loans.
Entry criteria vary according to the Access Course you’re applying for but generally speaking you’ll need numeracy and literacy skills at Level 2 and some previous experience in your chosen area of study – this could be from life experiences, voluntary or paid work. We’ll assess you once you make an application by inviting you in to discuss the course with a tutor.
