What unis accept access courses

For diagnostic radiography im planning on taking an access to radiography bur is this accepted? For example Herts
Hey, :smile:

If you would like to study a healthcare degree doing an access course first is a great idea to get the required UCAS points.

This is because an access course is to provide students with the academic skills and knowledge foundations needed for a degree. It is a perfect stepping stone and prepares you for university.

Many universities accept access courses however, i would advise that you check with the specific university you want to study at to make sure this is the case.

I hope this helps :smile:

If you look at the Entry Requirements section on the course page, then it should say what qualifications are acceptable. For Herts, it says the following for Access courses:

Access diploma should be Health care or science based
A minimum of 45 credits at level 3 of which at least 24 credits are graded at distinction and 21 credits graded at merit


If the Entry Requirements section is not clear, contact admissions and ask. :smile:
