Pre-Access Options

We have several pre-Access options for students who don’t yet have the qualifications required to join our Access course.

These options will help you to develop your basic academic and study skills and gain confidence.  You’ll study over the course of the academic year, attending college for between 1 and 3 nights a week, and work towards the qualifications you need in English, Maths and Science to meet university entrance requirements.

If you successfully complete these courses, you’ll gain nationally recognised Level 2 qualifications and will be able to apply to join our Access to HE Diploma course.


Options available include:

    • Biology GCSE
    • English Functional Skills
    • English GCSE
    • Essential Digital Skills
    • Maths Functional Skills
    • Maths GCSE


Please contact us to discuss the most appropriate options for you by emailing or calling us on 01403 216597.
