“Hello everyone,

It’s Alex, I studied on the access course 3 years ago. I was the bald man that talks too much.

I wanted to let you how that I have completed my nursing degree and was fortunate to get a first. An unexpected outcome given I was 14 UCAS points under the requirement for the course.

I have a job lined up in critical care at St Mary’s.

I wanted to thank you for all the help you gave me. I would not be in this position without you.”

In just nine months (September – June) you could be qualified to enter university and progress to that exciting new career.

The Access to Higher Education Diploma is nationally recognised as a university entrance qualification and alternative to GCE A levels. The programme is designed for adult learners who come from a broad age range and varied backgrounds.

As with all Level 3 courses at The College the usual entry criteria is 5 GCSEs at Grade 4 (C) but entry to the Access course can be based on evidence of life experiences, aptitude and commitment. All entrants must have GCSE English and Mathematics at grade C on entry.
