What is this course about?
An exciting and flexible range of Humanities, Social Science and Business subjects providing direct routes to university. You specialise in one of the following routes: Business, Education, History, Law, Psychology or Sociology. You also choose one or two subjects from options in Accountancy and Finance, Business Studies, Economics, History, Law, Literature, Philosophy, Politics, Psychology, Sociology, Social Anthropology and Third World and Developmental Studies. For the Education pathway you must do GCSE equivalents in English, Maths and Science instead of the options. If you study on this pathway this can lead to training as a primary teacher.
What will I study?
The Modular Access Programme (Evening) is a Level 3 one year Humanities and Social Science programme consisting of three sessions: three evenings, or two evenings and one afternoon a week. For one evening you take the core Tutorial and Study Skills modules, and on the second evening you study a key Humanities subject (currently, History). For your third session you will take a Humanities or Social Science subject option (currently, Literature or Politics) or a Humanities, Social Science or Business subject option on an afternoon (see æDay` above). Studying an Access course only or mainly in the evening is particularly demanding. Applicants will be expected to show at the interview stage that they will be able to cope with the academic demands of the evening programme with a minimum of support.,
What can I do after the course?
BA Degree courses at various universities. The college has developed strong links with universities over a number of years. On many pathways students are offered guaranteed places or guaranteed interviews at university on successful completion of the course.
