2. Who this course is for

Access to Higher Education courses are designed for students who wish to study for a degree or diploma but who do not have the required qualifications. The aim is to provide students (normally 19+) with the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed for success at university. Our Access courses focus on areas of social science, social work and health care, with students going on to study for degrees in subjects such as: Nursing, Midwifery, Psychology, Sociology, Criminology, Social Work, Sports Science and various health care specialisms. Access students come from a broad age range and varied backgrounds, and are typically dedicated and hard-working, having made a conscious decision to return to education. They have the advantage of life experience and sometimes employment to draw upon, and are generally very well received by Higher Education institutions. There are three important documents here for students interested in finding out more about Access course opportunities at Portsmouth College. The Course Information Sheet provides details on the courses available, entry requirements, sources of information on university and careers and the application/interview process. Please read the information here carefully as we hope it will answer many of your questions. Frequently Asked Questions will help you with your research before and after you make an application. In addition to the FAQs there is a list very useful websites on page 4.

3. Entry requirements

For any one of the Access pathways you must already have achieved grade C or above in GCSE Mathematics and English Language (Functional Skills qualifications are not considered to be equivalent). Grade C in an appropriate GCSE Science subject will often also be required depending on chosen combination of course units and your degree course ambitions.
