"Getting on to a midwifery course was a dream come true. It’s very competitive, but my tutor at the College gave me lots of support when applying,” said Nina.
“We have all had a challenging time under lockdown, but as restrictions begin to lift getting back to learning, or taking up a new subject or interest could be a welcome boost.
Research suggests that learning something new improves mental health and wellbeing, developing confidence and a new lease of life for many.”
The College is offering Access to HE courses in subjects ranging from Business, Computing and Health to Teaching, Psychology and Science.
Anne added: “Access to HE Diploma programmes are recognised by universities across the UK. Students can progress to degrees in nursing, midwifery, social sciences, paramedic, social work, health sciences, sport and physiotherapy, and primary teaching.”
Other new courses for September include GCSEs in Art, Business, Sciences and Psychology, Teaching Assistant courses and many more.
Many adults can study for free depending on circumstances.
