Our Pre-Access to Science & Nursing course is designed to provide mature (19+) learners with essential knowledge and skills that will support their progression directly into employment within the heath sciences or onto our Access to Science and Nursing ready to progress into higher education.
This course, which will run one day a week, gives a foundation in both study skills and subject knowledge.
Learners are introduced to life sciences which includes studying key topic areas in life science and the potential impact of current developments within the discipline.
Learners will also have the opportunity to enhance their maths and English skills, as well as specific study skills sessions (such as spelling and writing, critical thinking, research skills, numeracy skills related to sciences etc.) to improve proficiency and build confidence to help aid the transition of getting back into education.
The College of West Anglia offers many opportunities to continue studying from entry level through to degrees at University Centre West Anglia. Some of the courses available for those who have successfully completed this course include:
