Access to Higher EducationAdults Part-Time
Our brand new Access to Landbased qualification is a stepping stone to progress to further study in a wide variety of subjects, including veterinary nursing, bioveterinary science, animal care, equine studies and agriculture.
The aim of this course is to give you a second chance at education by developing your personal confidence and achievement, give you the ability to study and offer guidance to help you plan your future.
The course will provide a thorough grounding in the key concepts and theories you'll come across in further studies or training - it really is the perfect course to start your higher education journey!
On this one year course, you'll make full use of all of our brilliant facilities at the Cambridge campus. You'll study a variety of different topics, including:
You'll also have sessions in study skills to help prepare you for university and tutorial sessions to help you complete your UCAS application.
This course will be taught over two full days (TBC)
All our Access to Higher Education courses have a course fee which could be waived if you are aged 19-23 at the start of your course and have not completed a level 3 (or above) course before.
Otherwise, you could also consider applying for the Advanced Learner Loan to cover the cost of the course. If you complete an Access course and then progress onto and complete a degree (with us or elsewhere), you will not be required to pay back the remaining amount of your Advanced Learner Loan!
Depending on your age, course, educational history and personal circumstances, there may be options available for you to receive a course fully-funded by the government. Our fee calculator will help give you an idea on whether you'll be able to have your course fee waived or covered by an Advanced Learner Loan.
If you are aged 19 - 24 at the start of your course and have an active Education, Health & Care Plan (EHCP), any course up to and including level 3 will be fully-funded by the government. This means you will not have a course fee to pay and any equipment considered essential to complete your course will be provided by the college.
