Access and Pre-Access Courses If you left school without the qualifications you need to apply for a higher education course, we offer the opportunity to study for either an Access to Higher Education Diploma or Pre-Access to Higher Education Diploma. Access courses are the equivalent of a level 3 vocational course or three A-Levels. Most UK universities will accept this qualification as entry to study for a degree. Most of our access courses are offered part-time, meaning you can fit your studies around work and family. Pre-Access courses are the equivalent of a level 2 vocational course or five GCSEs; they are designed to prepare you for studying an access course. Browse our access and pre-access courses.

Evening & Leisure Courses Of course, education doesn’t just have to be about climbing the career ladder; perhaps you just want to learn a new skill in a subject that you have a passion for. We offer a number of adult courses, from ceramics to Microsoft. Doing a course out of love or interest is a great way to ease yourself back in learning, by engaging with like-minded learners in a very social setting. Browse our evening and leisure courses.
