For adult students who wish to go to university to get a professional degree, (e.g. nursing, business, computing) but are not yet ready for the Access course.  This may be because you have been out of education for a long time or because your recent training has been vocational rather than academic, or because you need to get your maths and English qualifications for Access.


Maths and English lessons are offered automatically when you enrol for Pre Access.  These will be on a separate day.
