Hi I'm applying for a Access to Higher Education course (health professions) to progress on to university to be a midwife. Has anyone done one of these access courses? And can you give me a insight to what they're like? Completely unsure what to expect. TIA

I just finished an access to science course and i can tell you it was easier than you would expect. Its pretty much all coursework based for science, with a few tutor supervised exams(at least for science). There are 45 credits that are graded and those will be split into units that are 3/6 credits each and you probably get a new assignment every week or 2. Then there's 15 credits of pass/fail units which are related to study skills/writing and will bore you to death.
All in all though it was pretty easy to get distinctions, except in physics(i feel the tutor was a harsh marker).
It is quite a lot of work though and late submissions will cap your grade for the unit at a pass so keep that in mind.Last edited by Johns123; 27-08-2016 at 13:03.
