What you need to know before you enrol
Your Access course will be very enjoyable, but also requires real dedication and commitment if you are going to succeed. Your course requires attendance around two and a half days a week. The course runs from the beginning of September to the end of June. We endeavour to prepare students for the demands of a University degree course in just nine short months. It is therefore essential that you think about how you are going to balance work, family and social life with your studies. You will be expected to do regular reading and written work on top of attendance in classes. We strive to make the courses as stimulating as possible for everyone, but it does require hard-work and determination on your part.
