An Access course is the nationally recognised alternative to A Levels and GCSEs for entry to British Universities and Colleges of Higher Education. The course offers excellent preparation for studying at a higher level and can increase your chances of future success.
At Halesowen College our Access programme is specifically linked to Birmingham City University, Newman University and Wolverhampton University but, as part of the Open College Network, the qualification is recognised nationally, leaving you free to apply to the University of your Choice. Even if you were to decide against progressing to higher education.
This course is designed to give you a broad overview of sciences, with a focus on biological science, environmental science, chemistry, physics and individual research skills. From finding out about how the human reproduction system works, discovering the structure of an atom and realising what impact environmental issues have on the planet.
