 Access to Health science nursing

SCCH students on this course can now not only apply for Nursing (including General Nursing, Geriatric Nursing, Paediatric Nursing, and Mental Health Nursing) and Midwifery, but they can also apply for degree courses in Occupational Therapy, Paramedic Training, Pharmacy and Radiography with some confidence. 

Study skills and a reflective diary are essential subject areas, and you will be given every possible assistance to complete your UCAS application to reflect your wishes and intentions. It is desirable for applicants to be working in a hospital environment, by the time they apply for university.

What do I need?

To be over 19 and at least two years out of education. *It is increasingly desirable that applicants for nursing courses hold 'C' grades at GCSE in Maths and English Language.

How will I be assessed?

This is a coursework-based qualification and you will be assessed through assignments.

What will I learn?

Chemistry, physics, biology, environmental science, microbiology, maths, IT and English (*see above)

Further Study?

Science or healthcare-based courses  at a range of HE institutions.

What are my career opportunities?

Previous learners on this course have gone on to become nurses, midwifes, physiotherapists, radiographers, or to work in pharmacy.

Are there any extra costs?


Additional Information?

Commencing in 2014, Access courses nationally will have been re-shaped to better reflect the key aims of the educational pathways studied. At Sussex Coast College, our provision will not alter fundamentally, but may be re-named. If in doubt, ask! Additionally, prospective applicants for Access should now expect to find that from October 2014 entry requirements to HE at national level include English and Maths GCSE at grade C (and Science for Education Studies).  If you do not have these grades, or if you need to re-sit, it is advisable that you attain that grade before entry to Access.
