Have you ever felt that you missed out on opportunities when you were younger? If so, the Access to higher education programme at Swindon College may well be right for you.
Courses are one year full time and run from mid-September to June, timed to fit around the school day and other commitments.
Access courses are designed for adults (normally 19+) who want to study for a degree but don't have the usual entry requirements. The Access course is equivalent to three A Levels and is accepted for entry requirements to related degree or foundation degree courses at British universities.
Pathways you can study towards include:
- Art & Design
- Occupational Therapy
- Social Work
- Teacher Training (Primary)
- General Degrees.
Who would benefit from an Access to HE course?
