so basically, i'm looking at doing an access course in science to then go on and apply to uni. problem with doing one at my local college is that its too late to apply for this year so i'd have to wait a whole year plus i work full time and would rather organise my study around my work rather than the other way around. ive found a couple of sites that do access to he courses online but none are recognised by QAA and i believe unis only accept them if they are. Also i'd like to apply for a course that also lets me apply for a 19+ advanced learner loan. anyone know if its possible to actually do an access course online thats recognised by QAA?
What are the downsides?
