Why this course?

Access to HE Health

The course will cover a range of academic skills that are designed to help you to progress onto a Level 3 Access to HE. The units covered will improve your ability to use a variety of literary techniques to help interpret the purpose of texts. It will also provide the ability to develop research skills and to support your ICT abilities.

This course will also give you the opportunity to prepare your personal statements to support your University application while on the Access to HE course.

There may also be an opportunity for those looking to study nursing to have the opportunity for work experience through the NHS.

If there is sufficient demand we will also look to offer the Pre-Access course at our Worthing campus.

Please note that this course runs One day a week (day TBC)
