Access to Nursing at Nescot


The Access to Higher Education (HE) Diploma is a qualification which prepares students for study at university. It is designed for people who want to do university-level study but who left school without A-Levels or a Level 3 BTEC qualification.

The main components of this course are specialised health science, and you will also cover study skills. Assessment is continual throughout the year, and will include assignments, reports, case studies, and examinations.

The Access to HE course will help you to develop the knowledge, skills and confidence you need to prepare you for university. Nescot offers Higher Education in subjects including Osteopathic Medicine and Sports Therapy.

You must be aged 19 or over on the first day of the course, but you do not need a work placement. You must have GCSE maths and English at grade 4 (formerly grade C) or above.
