How can I study access to radiography?

How can I when there’s no in person courses in a college?
Are there any ones online that accept loans? Not learn direct as u have to pay and can’t do that.
Also could I do gcse science alongside? Thanks !

You could choose an alternative Access course such as Health and Social Care or a science-based course. Have a look through the entry requirements on the course page for unis you would like to apply to for radiography as they all vary as to what they will accept.

You can find radiography courses using the NHS course finder:

Thank you so much! I’d rather go to an actual college too and there are some courses that could do the trick but unsure.
https://www.oaklands.ac.uk/study/higher-education/access-to-he/
could any of the courses like the medicine and medical science be fine for radiography?
https://bedfordcollegegroup.ac.uk/courses/combined-science-access-to-higher-education-advanced-level-3-bbk2290/
or this one? but it doesn’t state radiography it states other sciencey jobs.
https://www.peterborough.ac.uk/courses/access-to-he-science/
or this science one as it states radiography is a good choice. this course looks fun !
thanks , I’ll have a look at unis id apply to! and I’ll have a look at the course finder thank you so much. would you recommend studying IGCSS science now before the course starts and then complete exams during the access course? can igcses be taken in the autumn?
thanks a lot :smile:

Again the courses you've linked to above look fine but you do need to double check with unis what they will accept first. For example, Uni of Herts entry requirments for DR state '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. GCSE: Grade 4/C in English Language, Mathematics and Science.'

Access courses are quite intense so you might want to get your GCSE out of the way before you start. For exam timetables for iGCSE's, if you know which exam board you will take, it will have the timetables on its website.

Yes that’s right. I’ll contact them and ask.

The colleges courses would start in September, so thinking i could start with the IGCSEs now and continue through the college year, then im already a few months started and all im looking for is a four to get into uni. As long as my grade for access is really good thats fine. Is this still going to be impossible ? I really don’t want to start the access next year:/ but if that’s the only way then I’ll have to.

Edit: i found this https://qualifications.pearson.com/content/dam/pdf/Support/Examination-timetables-for-Edexcel-International-GCSE/november-2024-int-gcse-provisional.pdf
there’s exams in November. Would this be achievable if i started now or would it not be enough months to learn the content AND revise?

I think it's achievable in that time. :smile:
