Asked to do an Access Course before Degree?Watch
The advice was that for all mature students who haven't been studying *full-time* in the last 3 years, they should take an Access course before applying for a degree course.
I am just wondering if this is standard advice - have you been told the same? I am rather disheartened by this, as I feel that a 3-year course is all I can manage at this point in my life for personal reasons (financial and family commitments being at the front of my mind, as well as the fact that I am not getting any younger). Ideally I would have like to do a 4 year course leading to a masters, but realistically the masters will have to be done part-time once I have completed my degree and am in work.
Any advice on whether I should apply anyway for the degree, but do so early so that hopefully I would get either an offer or be declined with enough time for me to apply for an Access course )if I change my mind and feel that this is possible)? Any other advice appreciated, especially if you are or have been in the same position.

I was one of two mature students on my degree course - I didn't have to do an Access course before applying but the the other one did.
