This is a one year intensive course that prepares students for entry into Higher Education degree courses that provide a pathway into careers such as Teaching, Social Work, Psychology and Criminology. The Access course is an ideal route to university for students who do not have the traditional A Levels as it provides a mix of academic and career related subjects.
To prepare you for university study we ensure a wide variety of assessment methods are used on all of the Access pathways including student-led seminars, examinations, essays, presentations and a small scale research project – The Independent Academic Study. To achieve the Access Diploma, students must achieve 60 credits at level 3; 45 credits are graded at Pass, Merit or Distinction, and 15 are ungraded and achieve a pass.
