If you are aged 18 or over and are interested in improving your qualifications, taking a Higher Education course or pursuing a new career, but are unable to commit to a full-time study programme then this is the course for you! The part-time Access course takes place in Salisbury over two evenings, Tuesday and Thursday from 17.30 – 20.45. We now offer the Health and Social Care and Humanities diplomas.
Access courses are intended for adults who do not have A Levels or other Level 3 qualifications and enable you to prepare for, and gain entry to, degree and other Higher Education programmes.
You may have some qualifications already, for example GCSEs or an A level, but not enough to get into university (you will require GCSE English and Maths at grade 4 (formerly C) or above before you start the course, as this is a requirement for nearly all university courses) but above all, you will have made a conscious decision to return to education and bring a commitment and wider life experience to your studies.
The course aims to:
• Prepare you to progress to Higher Education
• Develop you as an independent learner
• Provide an awareness of opportunities for personal and professional development
