Entry Requirements

Applicants must be over 19 and have been out of full-time education for a year. To apply for a place on the Access to HE course, there are no requirements in terms of prior academic qualifications. However, applicants are required to sit an initial maths and English assessment to determine if their level of literacy and numeracy is sufficiently high to cope with a Level 3 course.

The outcome of this might be that an applicant is advised to complete maths and/ or English at GCSE before being considered for the Access course. If an applicant scores well on the initial test, it is possible to do maths and/ or English alongside the Access diploma, but it should be noted here that this is a substantial workload.
