Summary

The Access to Humanities pathway is a highly regarded Access course which offers students an opportunity to study a range of subjects to support those who wish to apply to university to study a variety of humanities-based degree courses. This course is for people who wish to study at higher education in areas such as law, sociology, psychology, history, geography and many other areas. This is a 1-year course contained within 3–4 days per week. This course is for mature students returning to education, or those wishing to pursue a different career route. A range of Academic Subject Content units are delivered from the following categories: sociology, psychology and English. A range of Academic Preparation Skills units are also offered.

How will I know how I am doing?

The course consists of 60 credits: 45 Academic Subject Content (ASC) graded at pass, merit or distinction, and 15 Academic Preparation Skills (APS). You will be set assignments to gain these credits throughout the academic year. These will involve essay writing, tests/exams and presentations.

What do I need to join?

Applicants should already have secured a grade C/4 or above in GCSE Maths and English to gain entry to the Access course. If applicants are currently studying GCSEs, they will need to have secured these (at a 4-grade minimum) by the course start date. Any applicants that believe they have GCSE equivalency should check with their university of choice to see if they meet their degree course entry requirements before making an application for Access.

What can I do next?
