    Hey,

    Anyone applied to do Earth Science at Richmond Upon Thames College for this year or has anyone ever studied the earth science access course here?

    I've never heard of an earth science access course, most colleges don't do them so prospective earth scientists have to make do with the access to science course instead. Because it is such a rare course you're unlikely to find other students here. But if you want to talk to fellow Access students look in the Mature Students forum.

    No i would not even move town for a diff uni but i am autistic and a homebird. The point i was making is that just because you had never heard of an eath science acces course does not mean you have to just do science. If the col does access to humanities with geography or sociology then thats another option. Science defo better but not necesssary if you not great at it.

    Oh I thought you were the OP, got a bit confused cos he was talking about a college in London. But like I said, there are very few Access to Earth Science (or Geography) courses so most people must be content with science.

    Like i said, science defo better but humanities can work, my coll does human with sociology, but it depends on uni u want to goto later. Swansea accepts access to humanities but op would have to check out other unis. Science acces is accepted in most of them so defo better. Like you, i would go with access to science but it depends on ops skills.
