Access to Health Care Course for RadiographyWatch
Hi, was just wondering if anyone had been accepted into university to do radiography after doing an access to healthcare course. The course does include physiology and units of anatomy.
Example SHU Diagnostic Radiography.
Access to HE Diploma from a QAA recognised Access to HE course in health studies, health science, nursing or another science-based course. Normally we require 15 credits at level 2 and 45 at level 3 of which at least 30 credits should be graded at distinction level. 18 of the level 3 distinction credits must be from science units.
Liverpool- (not sure where they get 60 credits from.
Essential: 60 credits at Level 3 (all should be new learning, ie. GCSE awards cannot be APL’d against the Diploma). 39 credits passed at distinction with a minimum of 15 out of 39 credits in modules relating to Biology, Maths and Physics. The remaining 6 credits must be passed at merit or higher.
The remaining 15 credits may be gained from ungraded credits at Level 3 and should be from academic subjects. Either another science or additional credits from the subjects stipulated above, 5 GCSE subjects graded A*-C and must include: English Language, Mathematics and Science
128 UCAS tariff points from an Access to Higher Education Diploma in Health Professions or Science.
Access to Higher Education Diploma to Health Science or Science to include 25 Level 3 credits at Distinction Grade and 20 Level 3 credits at Merits Grade, including at least 15 Level 3 credits at Merit Grade in a relevant Science subject. All other Access to Higher Education Diploma applicants will be required to have grade B in an acceptable GCE AL science subject
I would enquire directly with the universities you're interested in and go from there - good luck!
She's found out this week she has an interview so it is possible. As mentioned before though some universities will lean towards science content. They can be put off with health care courses as they do not think it has the required amount of science, so check to make sure
