About this course

Our Pre-Access course is a part-time programme that will prepare you for your journey towards Higher Education and study at University. The course is specifically designed for learners who would like to progress on to a higher education programme such as a degree and need to take the first steps to improve their confidence, study skills, maths and English and undertake subjects that might form part of their future degree such as sociology, psychology and health care.

A core part of your programme will be studying English and maths to provide you with the qualifications that you need to attend Access to HE and University. You will receive high levels of support from a team of tutors who are experienced at supporting and motivating adults to overcome barriers in order to reach their goals.

What you will learn

Your programme will be tailored to meet your future higher education plans and may include:

  • Academic study skills
  • Critical thinking
  • Psychology
  • Creative writing
  • Sociology
  • Healthcare studies
  • Politics
  • Maths
  • English

On the Pre-Access programme, you will be assessed using a variety of methods that are designed to increase your range of skills and prepare you for future study.

For example, you will write essays and reports, give presentations, take part in discussions and create posters.

Some of these methods of assessment might be new to you so we will ensure that you get full support to help you make your studies a success. 

Entry requirements
