2. Who this course is for

3. Entry requirements

Universities require learners to have GCSEs to progress onto a degree in nursing and West Thames College can help you get these alongside your Access course. To join an Access course, students must already have either their GCSE Maths or GCSE English (or both at grade A*-C / grades 9-5). If you need to achieve either your GCSE Maths or English qualifications, we will enrol you on this when you join the Access course and you will study this GCSE as you also study for your Access course. Please note that this is a very demanding course, equivalent to an A-Level programme, so you will need to have a good level of literacy and numeracy (GCSE grade A-C standard) in order to succeed. You will have an initial assessment to assess your suitability for the course. If successful, you will be invited for an interview. If you are not quite ready for the Access course we may offer you another course that will prepare you for the Access course. If you need advice before you apply, please call 020 8326 2020 or email ciag@west-thames.ac.uk.
