ABOUT THE COURSE

The Access to Higher Education Diploma (Nursing) is a Level 3 qualification which prepares adult learners without traditional qualifications to study Nursing at university.

The qualification gives you the relevant academic subject knowledge needed for higher education study, and the opportunity to develop study skills to help you to succeed. Access Diplomas are well-established and widely accepted by universities, qualifying for UCAS tariff points that are comparable to the tariff points for three A levels.

This particular course will provide you with the foundation knowledge of a range of healthcare professions, including Mental Health, Adult, and Child Nursing, Midwifery, and other related degrees. You will learn important study skills relevant to science, including undertaking effective research, collecting and analysing scientific data and writing experiment reports and essays. Additional modules will help you develop your study and research skills and assist with your personal development for further study.

This course is delivered at the Centre for Applied Sciences.

You will study modules including:

  • The Role of the Health or Social Care Professional
  • Anatomy and Physiology
  • Cells
  • Genes and inheritance
  • Human Tissues and Systems
  • Communication Skills in a Professional Setting
  • Ethical Dilemmas
  • Mental Health Conditions
  • Arithmetic Skills for Health Studies

WHAT WILL I NEED?

  • Be aged 19 or older
  • Have four GCSEs at grade 4 or above (A* - C), including GCSE English, GCSE Maths and GCSE Science (Double Award)
  • Have at least 2 weeks of relevant work experience
  • Attend an interview to confirm that the course is suitable for you

HOW WILL I BE ASSESSED?

Assessment is continuous over the whole year and is based on a number of set pieces of work such as essays, projects, presentations and tests.
