Fast Track at UCLAN

Hi, I just wondered if anybody had completed the fast track - Health and Social - Return to study programme at UCLAN? It is aimed at mature students wanting to progress onto a degree. I start in January and hope to go on to study a nursing degree in March. I'd love to know if anyone has experienced the course and what it involves etc.

Hi there @laurenjay17617, :smile:

Great to hear that you are returning to study! Our part time return to study entry programme runs over six-weeks during which you will be introduced to key concepts important to the theory and practice of Nursing and Health and Social Care. You'll develop the academic, literacy, and numeracy skills required for future study. This will also be the perfect opportunity for you to gain insight into what it would be like to study an undergraduate degree.

If you have any questions I will be more than happy to help. :smile:
Best wishes,
Sarah

Hi.
Please can you tell me if the return study to Health allows you to go straightly into first year of adult nursing?

Taking an Access to HE Diploma would enable you to apply for nursing and would be cheaper than paying for an extra year at uni:

Hi @esther.beauty,

It's great to see that you are interested in studying adult nursing here at UCLan. 😊

Our Nursing - Return to Study course is for UK applicants only and upon completing this programme, you may be eligible for entry into Year 1 of professional health and social care programmes, including nursing.

I would recommend you have a look at the pathways section of our Nursing - Return to Study course page as this will give you lots of information on the options available to students on this entry programme.

If you have any questions at all, please do ask. 😊

All the best ^Sarah
So it is not guaranteed to go year 1 right? What will that based on?
Can you do this instead of the access course?

Hi @esther.beauty,

Completing our Nursing Return to Study programme doesn't guarantee you entry into year 1 of our adult nursing programme. For more information on our return to study programmes and to discuss through your options, I'd recommend you contact our friendly course enquiries team who can help. You can either email the team at [email protected] or you can call them on +44 (0)1772 892400.

Do let me know if you have any questions 😊

Best wishes ^Sarah
