    Hey guys,

    I'm looking to study physics at university but I need to take an access course beforehand. I just need advice on which provider as location isn't an issue for me.

    I know doing A-levels and taking maths, further maths and physics would be the best option but I really don't want to do 2 years. Also, I've done my research and a lot of red bricks accept Access applications.

    http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=2055250 This guy seems to have taken the best course so far which is provided by Apted. I've already applied to a few colleges which follows this curriculum (pure maths, higher maths, physics) but I'm just wondering if there is an even more relevant and suitable course to apply for a physics degree?

    Thanks.

    Hi Timmy. You need to look for an Access course that has an engineering pathway, with plenty of maths modules. I went to Highbury college just outside Portsmouth, and had physics offers from Royal Holloway and from Portsmouth for year 1 entry and an offer from Southampton for foundation year entry. I also know people who got into Royal Holloway after doing an Access course at a college in Guildford. I'm not sure of the name of the college, but it shouldn't be hard to find. Going down the Access route rather taking A levels will limit the number of universities that will consider you, but it can be done.
