Additional Info

This course is an excellent way to prepare learners for the demands of the very intensive Access to HE diplomas, by allowing them to develop many of the study skills needed prior to starting the Access diploma. It is particularly useful for students who are returning to study after a long break and students who wish to improve their written English and gain valuable study skills in preparation for the access to HE diploma.
