Pre-Access as a subject discipline combines elements of biology, science, study skills and ethics. Whether you're interested in health care, science or social care, the Level 2 Pre-Access course can provide you with the necessary preparation to progress to a Level 3 Access course.
Continual assessment and exams.
You should be 19 or over at the start of this course.
There are no formal entry requirements but you'll need to show a commitment to study and demonstrate maths and English at an appropriate level, which may be by an assessment with us.
There may be materials you need to help with your studies. You'll either make a one-off payment for these when you enrol, or you'll buy them during the course. Your tutor will talk to you about this at interview or in your first class (if you don't need an interview).
Depending on your course and circumstances, you may be able to get funding to help with materials fees. Please check with us when you come in for interview or enrolment.
Progress on to the Access course or other Level 3 programme eg nursing, social work or health science.
