Distance learning Access to HE?Watch
Have you thought about the OU? They're not traditionally thought of as an Access course but do offer an access troute, and they're experts in distance learning. If you choose to you can do your whole degree with them, but if not then other unis do accept their courses.
Is it tough?
Anyone know which university will accept mature student for optometry ?
Ulster, Hertfordshire, Bradford, Manchester, Plymouth, and Portsmouth all accept mature students but it may be worth you focusing on one that offers the integrated masters (Moptom).
