Find an Access to University course that’s right for you.

Study for free 
Most students can study most of our courses up to level 2 for free. This includes English, Maths and our Pre-Access programme to support your future studies and career. 

For level 3 courses (including this course), you can apply for an Advanced Learner Loan. Most students do not need to pay back if they complete a university course afterwards or until they earn a certain amount.  

Study residentially 
Most students apply to stay residentially with us. We are a college only designed for adults, surrounded by over 500 acres of National Trust gardens and parkland. This means you can focus on your studies with like-minded peers and receive exceptional support throughout.
