Get ready to discover how to access higher education

The Access to Higher Education (HE) Information Day will be full of activities, with advice on career routes, College support services and finance and funding.

The Information Day in June is the perfect chance to find out more about Access courses

Available in a broad range of subjects, one-year Access to Higher Education courses provide learners who have been out of education for a time with excellent study skills in their chosen area and qualifications for progression onto university courses. 

Access to Science alumnus Amy Hambly-Symons is now a qualified Dental Hygiene Therapist working in Truro.

I cannot praise the Access to Science course enough, it was really confidence building but also really helped with my degree because everything that it covered was very relevant to what I did at university. I learned referencing, presenting, writing and laboratory skills.
