A one year course that can springboard you to higher education.
Our Access to Higher Education courses give people without traditional qualifications the opportunity to go onto university after just one year’s study.
These courses are designed to broaden your knowledge in your area of interest and bring you up to A level standard in just one year. Leicester College offer courses in:
- humanities and social science
- health professions
You need to have both English and maths GCSE at grade 4 (C) or above. Here at Leicester College we can support you on access courses by providing the opportunity to study GCSE maths or English at the same time. However if you don’t have either of these qualifications you could consider our Pre-Access course. This is an intensive one year full-time programme which concentrates on preparing adult learners to return to study, as well as concentrated maths and English learning.
Student loans are available to cover course fees, and if you go continue on to university you usually don’t have to repay the loan for your Access course.
