Entry requirements

You must be 19 years of age by 1st September in the year the course starts.

Students must hold a level 2 pass in English and maths before enrolling onto an Access to HE course. This would be an A-C in GCSE’s or Level 2 functional skills. If a student with level 2 functional skills wishes to study a GCSE alongside their Access to HE course they can, but we would recommend only one due to the demands of both courses. Those students without a pass at level two can be supported to achieve these qualifications though our GCSE and Step Up programmes before enrolling on their Access to HE Course. 


What's next

After successful completion of this course you could progress onto our Law and Criminal Studies Foundation Degree and then onto our LLB Hons.

Alternatively you could seek higher education at another university of your choice, seek employment within the industry or go onto an higher level apprenticeship.

Following your application to an Access HE course you are strongly advised to research the individual entry requirements for the HE courses and universities you wish to progress to.
