Want to know what it is like studying these courses? Sammy August 5 out of 5 The Access course has truly been the best decision I have made as I have managed to gain so much confidence around academic study and writing.
Not only that, but the people that I have met on this course have been so warm and friendly and I know that getting through would have been harder without their constant kindness. Access courses are eligible for the Government's Advanced Learner Loans scheme - and if you go onto study a relevant degree after your course, you will not have to pay back the loan for your Access course!
City and Islington College was the first in the country to offer Access to HE courses back in and is now one of the largest providers, with over 10 different courses ranging from Medical Biosciences and Forensic Science, to Humanities, Law and Teaching.
Many universities actively encourage applications from Access to HE students. University taster days and events are arranged throughout the course to provide seamless progression to Degree programmes.
If you go on to successfully complete a degree your Access course loan is written off.
Steph June 5 out of 5 The access course has allowed me to go places I never thought possible. Over half-way through I can tell this was definitely the best decision for me, as I was eager to go to university but unsure as to what I wanted to learn and if I could get into the universities of my choice.
Yes the course is demanding, and some days are better than others, and you have to put in effort, but it changed my life. I can honestly say I have enjoyed every single lesson, especially working in the lab on practical ways of apply biology and chemistry.
Equivalent to A Levels, the Health or Science Diplomas offer a great basis for further study in areas such as nursing, midwifery, physiotherapy, teaching or social work.
I now have a place to study physiotherapy. This course has exceeded my expectations.
