  • Who is it for?

    This course is designed to prepare adults for degree level study. It offers a rigorous A level equivalent in a supportive environment. Access programmes are flexible and attractive to adult students who would like to improve their educational qualifications and are popular with students who may have been out of formal education for some time and who appreciate a more adult-friendly learning atmosphere. Most students aim for careers in nursing, social work or teaching but the range of destinations is not limited to these.

  • Entry Requirements

It is strongly advised that you achieve these before you start an Access course. You can study GCSE English, maths and Science at Shrewsbury College. Your options will be discussed at interview.
