So I'm currently studying an Access Course in Social Sciences, with Psychology and Criminology pathway. I'm studying it with Stonebridge College. Next year I hope to study BSc Psychology and Criminology in university.
This means that the course covers both Psychology and Criminology. And there are 21 units altogether. But I'm sort of confusing myself of what it consists of?
Would this Access Course be enough to meet uni entry requirements? Because I keep coming across Access Courses needing to have three subjects if you want to be considered??
I have my GCSE qualifications so that's not a worry but I think I just keep reading too into Access Courses and I'm confusing myself?? I know how it's graded but I'm worried the access course itself isn't enough for university??

Access courses are too variable in their content and quality to be able to say globally that they are suitable for a particular university course. You should find that you have a good selection of universities to which you can apply to that course with an Access course, but you need to draw up a uni shortlist and actually check with them that (a) they accept Access courses full stop and (b) that your access course, with its specific module structure and the split of Level 2 and Level 3 modules is appropriate and acceptable. This is the safest way to be sure the uni you apply to will actually accept your qualifications.

Access courses can often be enough just on their own for arts and humanities subjects - less so for scientific subjects, where they often provide inadequate preparation. But again, you need to check specifically.
