You will study a mixture of units on various topics in sport and academic study skills to support your progression into University.
All units will feature a range of coursework assessments that will develop the skills needed for higher education. Some units will also have elements that are formally examined. All work is internally and externally moderated by assessors from the awarding body Certa.
The course will be delivered at Park Lane Campus with a combination of in-class lessons and Distance Learning.
You must be 19 years of age by 1st September in the year the course starts.
It is essential that you will have attained a Level 2 in English and Maths (GCSE grade C or above) prior to entry on the Access Diploma as these subjects are often required for degree level courses.
Those who do not have GCSE Maths and English will be directed to Level 2 Access Foundation or suitable alternatives as preparation for progression to Access Level 3 or other Level 3 courses.
The Diploma is designed to give successful students an alternative entry qualification and route to many Higher Education courses both locally and nationally, including sports nutrition, psychology, science, health and fitness and sports development.
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.
