Hey, does anyone know if the majority of Universities would accept a pyschology with criminology access to higher education course diploma as suitable to apply for a law degree? I have contacted a few but seems like they take a while to get back.

Hello! I've taught on Access to HE for 10 years however it has been on the social sciences pathway and not law. For a subject like law at degree level, they typically want three good A levels with one or maybe two particular subjects, some providers have more flexible entry requirements subject wise. I would speak to the course co-ordinator on the Access program you are interested in, as they will be familiar with local offers for students.

If you can find a Local Access to Law program that would be your ideal option though.

The Social Science pathway tends to be very open progression route wise, we recently closed our Primary Teaching Pathway because learners could do the social science one instead and then do teacher training at Uni. I once had a student who did Primary Teaching, was told she just needed to pass the course, and did a degree in Music Production!

Hello, every university I've checked seems to accept an Access to HE diploma with a certain number of distinctions but they never specify exactly what types of courses would be accepted for law. One University said it needed a similar course like Humanities but still left it quite non-specific. Doesn't seem like there is many local options in Northern Ireland in terms of access courses for law/pyschology.
