Access to HE (Sciences)
What will I learn?
The course covers units in the following subject areas:
- Study Skills
Some qualifications at Level 2 (e.g. GCSE grades at C/4 or above) will be advantageous. Universities will expect you to have GCSE Maths and English at grade C/4 or above for primary education; a grade C in Science will also be needed. It may be possible to sit a GCSE Maths or English alongside the access course if you are deemed a suitable candidate.
Your qualifications and skills, as well as your interest and aptitude for the course, will all be discussed during an interview with John Leggott College course tutors. This will ensure the course is correct for you and you have the best chances of accessing and successfully completing a Higher Education course.
How long will it take to qualify?
This will depend on the length of the course you take after JLC. Options are available at several HE establishments to fit in with other commitments. You could study full-time or part-time. The average FT degree will take 3 years. PT equivalents can take up to 6 years to complete.
How will I be assessed?
You will be assessed via range or means including presentations, written essays and assignments, exams and a research project/dissertation.
