  • Entry requirements
    Who is this course for? For people who want to apply to higher education in September 2009 who do not possess the usual formal qualifications required by universities. What do I need to get on the course? No qualifications are needed to get onto these courses but to ensure that you are choosing the right course, you will take a written language assessment, and for the Business, Education and Psychology routes a Maths assessment unless you have a Maths GCSE at Grades A-C or equivalent. You will be expected to show Level 3 ability or potential in written language assessment and Level 2 skills or potential in the Maths assessment.
  • Academic title
    OCN LR (Open College Network London Region ) Access Certificate if successful, or a record of those credits achieved. The Access certificate is recognised by most universities as an adult equivalent qualification to the A-levels or vocational qualifications which younger students have to achieve in order to enter higher education.
  • Course description
    What is this course about?
    An exciting and flexible range of Humanities, Social Science and Business subjects providing direct routes to university. The modular access programme offers you a wide range of possible subject routes, and flexible day or evening attendance patterns which may fit around your work, domestic or other commitments.

    What will I study?
    This is a Level 3 one-year programme consisting of four sessions: two mornings, and two afternoons or one afternoon and one evening. You can choose from several routes: Education (primary teaching), Psychology, Sociology, History, Law, Business or Business in Practice (this route includes residential study). For one morning you study your main subject and on the second morning you take the core Tutorial and Study Skills modules. You may then choose options from the afternoon or evening depending on your chosen route and your existing qualifications.

    The subject options are: Accountancy and Finance, Business Studies, Economics, History, Law, Literature, Philosophy, Politics, Psychology, Social Anthropology, Sociology, and Third World and Development Studies. Students on the Business and Psychology routes will take Maths, unless they already have a relevant GCSE or other Maths qualification, and one option. On the Education route, instead of the options, you will take GCSE-equivalents in English, Maths and Science unless you already possess these relevant GCSEs at Grade A to C. Students on the Sociology, History and Law routes, and those students on the Business, Psychology and Education routes who do possess relevant GCSEs, can take up to two options.

    Read about residential course attended by Access to Business in Practice students last year.

    What can I do after the course?
    You may progress onto university immediately, or may decide to wait for a year or two before entering. The Modular Access Programme at City and Islington College is regarded highly by many universities and students may be able to choose from several offers by different universities.
