The people who come onto Access courses often feel they did not fulfil their potential at school. They may have spent many years in unsatisfying work, been at home looking after children or have otherwise been in a situation where they have needed to take a decision about bringing about a change in their lives.
What they all do have in common is a thirst for knowledge and a desire to carry on with their education. Many students from Access have progressed successfully onto study at degree level and then onto their chosen career.
There are no formal entry criteria for this course.
Assessment is ongoing throughout the course. Assignments, which take a variety of forms (such as essays, reports and presentations) are completed for each module. Students on all pathways complete a final assessment of a research project and presentation on a topic within their subject discipline.
