    Hi

    I would like to get back into education, particularly economics. Unfortunately do not have correct qualifications and would need to do an access course. Unfortunately i have not found a suitable course yet,
    have any of you done an access course then Bsc Economics? If so could you give me the details/ title of the access course.

    Many thanks

    As far as I know, there are no access courses that can offer the level of maths needed for an Economics BSC at anywhere except the lowest ranking universities.

    As paulwhy pointed out to me earlier on, some universities offer foundation years which may be suitable. I'm not sure if there are any which prepare the student for a BSC though.

    I am currently studying Access (Law, Sociology, Eng-lang) but will have to self study A-level maths to be accepted on a BSC degree. Have you considered self studying A-levels? If I could turn back time I would take this route.

    Just that if you go that route you "can't" do A-level maths first. Atleast that is my literal understanding of their admission criterea.
