    Hi everyone!

    I am applying for this access course to begin next September. Just wondering how you found it, what the assessments were like, what the tutors were like etc? How long was each day at the college? Any other info?

    I want to progress to study Computer Science at University of Surrey (thats where I live) and Kingston is the closest college to me that has access to computing... Guildford college have other access courses but Surrey can't tell me wether they are suitable until I've made a UCAS application by which time it could be too late ... not sure which way I'll go at this point!

    Thanks

    Sounds like a nonsense and you can just get them to talk to each other.

    Surrey require

    Access to HE Diploma
    Overall: QAA-recognised Access to Higher Education Diploma with 30 Level 3 Credits at Distinction and 15 Level 3 Credits at Merit and A-level Mathematics grade B.
    Required Subjects: Modules must be in relevant subjects.
    GCSE Equivalent: English Language C(4) and Mathematics B(5).





    Just ask Kingston to give you a detailed breakdown of whats on the course. Its highly unlikely that it will be unsuitable. Offers are normally made in terms of grades.
