    Normally your have a maths exam you do a couple of modules, I'm sure all the access courses the same can't remember anymore exams.

    Are you doing the access now or thinking about it?

    Coming to think of it, some access courses require you to undertake a maths and English test to see what level your working at, then they decide if your working level is suitable for the course. As you already know access courses are for over 19s some people haven't been to school or college for years and this forms the foundation for progression to degree level if that makes sense.

    I know the access courses have changed since I did mine years ago. But normally you would have to sit a maths exam and go through the required modules when their due. If you really want to do an access course you should have a look at your local colleges prospectus to see the course content, this should includes modules and exams, better still give them a call and see when their next open day is so you can speak to the module tutors and so on.

    What are your interests if you don't mind me asking? Is nursing something you want to get into?

    Hi, Blackstarr

    Do you have experience in care?

    Do you have any universities in mind/ locations of course?

    This is an example of what London South Bank University require for their Adult Nursing degree Sept 2017 entry, These nursing courses are subject to tuition fees of £9250 per year. So that's over £27K for 3 years

    Whereas previously these courses were funded by the government (Not anymore)

    Really consider the financial implications of this course, I sadly can't afford the course and have to rely on student loans for the 3 years and this will eventually have to be paid back.

    2017 entry
    • A Level BCC or;
    • BTEC National Diploma DMM or;
    • Access to HE qualifications with 9 Distinctions and 36 Merits or;
    • Equivalent level 3 qualifications worth 112 UCAS points.
    • Applicants must hold 5 GCSEs A-C including Maths and English or equivalent (reformed GCSEs grade 4 or above).

    Hi Soniaaa123


    Since your on benefits you may be entitled to a discount, but your safest bet would be to check with the college directly to and go from there. X
