    Hi there,
    I would like to start an Access HE course with Harriet Ellis and I would like to know if anyone have completed this course with them and if it was helpful at all considering that the course comes at the wonderful price of £960.
    I'm almost 21 and I have no GCSE's because I'm not British, and as soon as I've finished high school I decided to move here and supporting myself working in a call centre.
    After 2 years of being on the phone I realised that this is not what I want to do with my life and how irresponsible I was when I left my country a month before taking my final exams.. Now I would like to take a course, maybe taking my GCSE'S but an Access course seems more appealing atm.
    What would you recommend?
    Any tips on how to become a fully qualified and trained nurse? I know Harriet Ellis gives you 60 credits at the end of the course. Pardon my ignorance but I have no idea what the credits are and how they affect an eventual application to a uni. Do I need anything else besides an Access diploma to apply to a uni?
    I do apologise for all the questions, but I've been researching the subject for the past 3 hours and I can't seem to find answers to my questions.
    Thank you very much x

    I am study with Harriet and Ellis their Access course and I am submitting my last assignments now. I have really enjoyed the course. It has not been an easy time, there are a lot of assignments to do but they are interesting. I have had loads of support, I just emailed when I had a question and I always got an answer. I have 4 conditional offers for adult nursing and I am set to meet these, so I am happy. I would say go for it, Harriet Ellis are a good college.

    I believe to apply for a nursing degree, in all of the nursing specialisms adult/mental health/paediatric/learning disability, all universities require GCSE Grade C or above in maths, some require A-C in science and English as well, or equivalent. You can find out the entry requirements on each university's website. They also specify the entry requirements if you have completed or are completing an access course, for example 30 credits at distinction, 15 credits at merit.
    Do you know which universities you want to apply to, and also your chosen specialism? As when you apply you need to make it clear which branch you are applying for and why.
    It's competitive to get a place at university to study nursing, places are limited and universities set high entry requirements, you can find advice on the nhs careers website and the Royal college of nursing website on how to become a nurse.
    I hope this small amount of advice helps.

    Hi, the person you have quoted hasn't been on the site for over a year so I am unsure if you will get a response.
    I studied an access course at my local college & I am now studying adult nursing at university, so I may be able to offer some advice. If you are able to talk to your tutor (if you have one) that would be a good place to start, they will most likely be able to direct you to the right place or offer support directly. If you are struggling with a particular subject you could always look at the forum for that particular subject and ask for advice there. There is also advice on TSR about academic writing if that is an area you are struggling in.
    If you have any specific questions, feel free to ask, I may be able to help or direct you to the right person or place.
    Lastly, the access course is tough and I think everyone struggled at some time or another, so you are not the only one.
    I hope this helps.
