Access and Adult Foundation

Our Access and Adult Foundation provision is the perfect way to get back into education with the view to go onto university or to change direction in your career.

About Access and Adult Foundation

Access to Higher Education courses are designed to provide mature learners with the confidence and skills needed to cope with the academic demands of higher level study. We particularly welcome applications from mature learners who have decided on a career change or who are returning to their studies following a break. 

Adult Foundation is an intensive one year course which builds on existing skills. You will study GCSE English and Maths, and as part of Agored’s Skills for Further Study Diploma you will study Science, Social Science, Maths, IT and Study Skills. Weekly tutorials are held to explore progression routes and support you through your studies.

#YourFuture

After completing an Access to HE course, many students go on to study a range of Higher Education courses at local or national universities. Students may also opt to progress within the college to one of the Foundation Degree pathways available.
