Access Courses

Access courses are designed to meet the needs of students who have not studied A-levels and would like to fast-track onto a University degree. We are committed to providing support for students from a wide variety of backgrounds. You will study in a friendly and supportive atmosphere with tutors who are enthusiastic about their subjects.


On successful completion of the course, you will be considered for a place on a relevant higher education course at the University of Bolton if you achieve the required grades profile.

Personal Development

Develop the key skills necessary to succeed in higher education – researching, writing and analytical thinking. You will also develop other personal skills that will support your study such as teamwork, time management, IT, and oral and written communications.

Professional Accreditation

Our Access to HE Diploma courses are nationally accredited by Open Awards, acting on the behalf of OCNNWR.
