Suitability - Who should attend?

Applicants must be over 19 and have been out of full-time education for a year.

To be eligible for a place on an Access to HE Online programme, you must have GCSE English and maths at grade 4 (C equivalent) or above, or a Functional Skills Level 2 qualification.

As this is an online course, it is not possible to study maths and/or English at an Activate Learning college alongside the main qualification.

You will have a numeracy and literacy assessment to check your suitability to study at Level 3.

If you are successful at your initial assessment, you will need to demonstrate that you have a realistic career goal in mind and the motivation to achieve.

Some degrees require that you have some relevant paid or voluntary work experience and this will also be checked at interview. Applicants are strongly advised to check degree entry requirements with prospective universities before applying.

There is a wide range of support available at the college for students, including financial support.
