Higher Education - Access to HE

If you’re keen to study higher education but don’t have the necessary qualifications or experience, don’t worry. In just 12 months, our Access to Higher Education (HE) programme will get you ready for degree-level study, either at B&FC or at another education institution.

Choose from one of six different pathways, depending on your chosen career area:

  • Education Professions - for a teaching career in the primary or secondary sector or to be a learning support teacher

  • Humanities – for careers in teaching, journalism and marketing or to be a writer/poet

  • Nursing and Midwifery - for careers in nursing, paramedicine, occupational therapy and midwifery

  • Science – to be a radiographer, bio-medical scientist, ecologist, pharmacist, zoologist, science teacher or veterinary nurse

  • Social Sciences – for careers in the Probation Service or to be a mental health nurse, social worker or counsellor

  • The Legal Profession – for careers within the criminal justice system or to be a social worker, probation officer or solicitor

What are the entry requirements?

You just need to have 4 GCSEs or equivalent qualifications, including maths and English.

What will it cost?

Depending on your circumstances you may not have to pay course fees – check our Tuition Fees for Further Education. If you do have to pay fees, you could be eligible for an Advanced Learner Loan. And if you go on to successfully complete a degree course, your Access to HE fees will be automatically refunded.
