Appreciation of the demands of the course including maturity and motivation to follow an intensive programme.
Before applying for the course you should research universities and be aware of their individual entry requirements; for instance, entrants to degree courses in Social Work are required to have GCSE Science, Maths and English at Grade C or above. Many universities stipulate that you must have achieved GCSE Maths and English at Grade C or above in order to obtain a place, that is when you apply via UCAS.
We expect to provide an opportunity to study Maths GCSE alongside the Diploma for those students whose Maths skills fall just below the Grade C standard at GCSE. All students study English as part of their programme; for those who specifically require English GCSE, early enrolment onto the evening GCSE course is advisable as it will not be provided as part of the course
- Have been out of education for longer than a year
- Have no qualifications to date but show ability
- Students who want to change subject area having already gained a BTEC or GCSEs

The Access programme is designed to suit a wide range of individual needs. Flexibility has always been a key feature and we work with each student to plan an individual programme.
