What do I need to get on this course?

You are expected to be working at level 2 and this is equivalent to having a GCSE grade B. To demonstrate your competency in Maths and English, all applicants will be asked to complete the college’s initial assessment. The assessment* will cover comprehension in English, basic Math including fractions, percentages, ratio plus converting units of measure and you will also be asked to write an essay.

A selection interview will follow if you are working at level 2 or above. The interview** will explore your interest in and aptitude for nursing or midwifery and other related topical issues. A decision will then be made to either offer you place on the course or not.

How will I be assessed?

The qualification you will receive on completion of this Access course is the Access to Higher Education (Nursing) Diploma. To attain this, you must have 60 credits of which 45 have to be from level 3 units and the remaining 15 from level 2 units. Each unit is worth 3 credits and has assessment criteria that have to be met through a variety of assessment methods like class work, group work, discussions, timed exams, presentations and essays. However, the work placement unit is worth 6 credits and you are required to work for 60 hours over a two week period in the Spring term in a health care setting. This would be within in the local area in a care home, or day centre, GP’s surgery or hospital that we would arrange on your behalf. You would need a CRB for this. However, if you already working in a care setting, you would simply need to do 60 hours of work over the two week period and do not need another CRB.

Your progress is also assessed in terms of your attendance, punctuality and your ability to hand in your work on time. Feedback on this would be given to you by your course tutor.

Where does it lead?

You will be able to apply to do a degree programme at university in Nursing (all branches), Midwifery, Paramedic Science, Public Health, Physiotherapy, Operating Department Practice or any other Health Studies course. Majority of our students get places at university and many of them opt to study at one of the following: the University of Greenwich, Middlesex University, Kings College London, London South Bank University, City University, Kingston University, Canterbury Christ Church University, Anglia Ruskin University, Oxford Brookes and also West London University,
