ABOUT THE COURSE

If you would like to study Nursing at university but left school without the qualifications you need, then this Access to HE course could be for you. Each year, over 20,000 Access to HE students apply for a degree course at a UK university; if you go on to complete a relevant degree at university, your Advanced Learner Loan will be written off by Student Finance England.

Our Nursing Access to Higher Education course is specifically designed to help you gain access to nursing courses at the higher education level. You will study a range of nursing topics, including nursing studies, health sciences (including biology), psychology and sociology.

You will also learn key presentation skills, seminar skills and writing skills that will be crucial at university level. Throughout the course you will undertake a research project and participate in lessons aimed at preparing you for higher education, helping you focus on developing your academic, literacy and examination skills.

From September 2020, degree-level nursing and midwifery students will have access to an annual grant of between £5,000 to £8,000, to help with living costs - the grant is not means-tested and will not need to be repaid.

Otherwise, you will have to pay the fees yourself or apply for an Advanced Learner Loan.

Please see here for the documents you will need to show us.

Some courses will have other associated costs, such as for specialist materials and trips. Many of our students are eligible for financial support, see here for details.

WHAT CAN I DO AFTER?

Once you have completed your Access to HE course, you can progress to a Higher Education degree at a university or college. 

You should check requirements for specific degree courses - different Higher Education institutions may have different entry requirements for similar courses.
