A key barrier is finance, and this is often why mature learners put off returning to education. At Buxton and Leek College however, there is means-tested financial support available for out Access Students. Means-tested support means that funding is not a guarantee, but students who fit the eligibility criteria will be able to apply.
You will be taught through lectures, tutorials, workshops and practical sessions. You will be assessed in a variety of ways, including presentations, reports, essays and case studies
This programme could allow you to go on to undergraduate degree courses both at Derby and throughout the UK
