Just need pointing in the right direction really! I am now at the age (24) at which I am now ready to study properly. I've been in fulltime work since leaving school, and travelled a lot of the world, but I'm not too sure as to go about getting into uni. I have a number of GCSE's and AS levels, but no a levels. Where do I start? Access course? Back to college? How long will it take? I'm prepared to put the work in as It will be worth it in the long run. Just need to be pointed in the right direction!
Thanks Harry, thats cleared it up for me. Am i being very naive and thinking that if i was to take an access course that the actual course subject has to link with what i eventually want to do at university? (silly question i know) As there isn't any local course that actually fit the bill for me, which i guess would mean travelling further afield for them.
We are happy to consider applicants with Access qualifications. The programme must be a QAA recognised programme. We may ask for specific grades in specific units and for particular subjects to be studied.
Another advantage to phoning Uni Admissions directly is that they can advise you on other options at their institution - some run one year foundation courses for people without the normal A levels, for example, which could be an alternative to the Access course.
