    I was only recently informed that the college which I had planned on attending this year is now cancelling their Access to HE because of a lack of numbers. There are no other institutes in the area offering such a course. Are there any other courses which would allow me to apply for University next September, or is Access really the only course of it's kind?

    Hello! I think it depends on what course and university you would like to attend/study. I'm applying to go to University after completing my HNC (Part Time - Evenings) and I have emailed various admissions departments to confirm they would accept this as access courses are full time and wouldn't fit around work. Some universities have asked for the course content so they can review and others have told me what grades I need to achieve to get this (Generally nearly all distinctions). I'm pretty sure the UCAS site gives you an idea of what the different universities accept what entrance courses.

    The best thing to do is speak to the admissions department where you want to study. I've just completed an Access course that was recommended to me by the University I will be going to in September but I also know someone who only had to show recent evidence of study. This was covered by just sitting a GCSE exam because she had lots of relevant experience but she'd had a break from studying for a number of years.
