Start Date
September 2021
Study Mode
Entry Requirements

*Coming Soon

This qualification is aimed primarily at students who wish to pursue a career in one of the humanities or social science professions which require academic study at university, but who are not yet ready to study at Level 3. This may be because of gaps in their skills or knowledge, perhaps because their schooling was interrupted or disrupted, or because they are returning to study after bringing up a family. Learners who may be in this position include those who need to:

  • build a foundation of knowledge and understanding in an unfamiliar academic area
  • prepare for higher level study after some time away from formal education
  • build the confidence, skills, knowledge and understanding required to progress on to Level 3
  • achieve an appropriate formal qualification in order to progress to Level 3 study such as an Access to HE Diploma

This course is designed to be delivered alongside GCSE’s if required.

York College Access courses are validated by Skills and Education Group Access.
