Access to Nursing, Midwifery & Health Science (19+)

Do you want a career in Nursing (Adult, Child, Mental Health or Disability), Midwifery, Radiography, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Sports Therapy, Sports Science, Biomedical Science, Psychology, Dental Health and Hygiene, Paramedic Science or Operational Department Practice (Theatre Management)? Our Fast Track to University course for those aged 19+ can get you on the relevant Degree in 1 year.

If you take out an Advanced Learner Loan to fund this course, then go on to complete a Higher Education course, you’ll be eligible to have the balance of your Advanced Learner Loan written off. However, if you don’t complete either course, you won’t be eligible to have the balance written off, and will need to repay your loan in full.

Awarding Body:

We support mature students with few formal qualifications but with life experience and help to create pathways to life-changing opportunities. Many adults have the potential and ability to study for a Degree or professional qualification but have been unable to do so because their education was disrupted due to family, financial, social or personal circumstances. The Fast Track to University course is a great way for mature students to get back into education. You will be given support and guidance throughout the UCAS application process so that when you have completed the course you are able to move straight to your chosen Degree.

Additional GCSE requirements also need to be considered as these are not set by the individual institutions but by a national body.
