Applicants are encouraged from anyone with a desire to work in Computing and IT. Adults enrolling on an Access to HE course have made a conscious decision to return to education, bringing a commitment and wider life experience to their studies. Our Access course is designed to reflect this with applicants demonstrating clear commitment, maturity and motivation. The course is intended for adults who do not have traditional sixth-form or vocational qualifications, allowing them to prepare for and gain entry to degrees and other Higher Education programmes.
Learners are admitted to the programme by application form and formal interview, with a further guidance interview where appropriate. Where necessary, evidence of your determination to succeed may be requested.
Applicants must have achieved GCSE or Level 2 equivalent in English and Maths before the course starts. The College does offer Functional Skills intensive courses and exam entry for English and Maths. For those with English as a second or other language, either IELTS 5.5 or successful completion of The College language assessment is required.
We will offer you the opportunity to check your level in these subjects prior to/at interview and support you in identifying how you can improve these skills if necessary.
