Courses offer fast track to university study

Published on Monday, April 29, 2019

PEOPLE who are interested in studying at university but who don’t yet have the entry qualifications can find out about alternative routes at a series of open days.

Leicester Adult Education College, in Belvoir Street, is holding the events to promote its Access to Higher Education diplomas.

The open days will offer an introduction to fast track courses aimed at people who have been out of education for some time and have few or no formal qualifications.

Open days will be held on the following dates:

  • Friday 3 May (10am to 1pm)
  • Friday 5 July (10am to 3pm)
  • Friday 30 August (10am to 2pm)

People attending will be able to speak to staff and current students, find out about funding and fees, and get a taste of the courses and subjects available to study.

The next Access to Higher Education Diploma courses – in business and social science – begin in September 2019.

There are also pre-access courses available for people who need to brush up on their skills before starting on the diploma.

Jackie Mills, access to higher education programme leader at Leicester City Council, said: “The courses we offer are a great opportunity to learn alongside other adult students. The study programmes are designed to equip people with all the skills needed to prepare for a successful experience on a range of university courses.

“These diplomas offer a fast track for adults who want to go to university but who don’t yet have the necessary qualifications.”
