Access to Uni event is a great success!
We had a fantastic turn out for our Info Event in June. Potential Access to HE learners learned all about what an Access to HE entails as well as hearing from our partners from University of Chester and the Student Loans Company.

Following a hugely successful first year of our Access to HE courses, we are pleased to be running them again in September 2023. There has never been a better time to start your journey to university and Learn Telford can offer you all the support you need to get there! Learners on last year's course have now secured places at the unversity of their choice in subjects such as, Midwifery, Psychology, Nursing, Speech and Language Therapy, Special Educational Needs and Inclusion, Childhood studies and Social Science!
We have 2 Access to HE courses starting in September 2023. These are the Access to HE Diploma (Education) and Access to HE Diploma (Health Professionals).

This course will run part-time over 1 year starting in Autumn 2023, and provides direct access into HE provision for those who would like to study education related subjects at university level, but do not currently hold the pre-requisite qualifications. It is expected that learners undertaking this course will work on their UCAS (University) application with our support during the course. The course will be run in a local community venue in Telford so that it is close by and accessible for local people. The course is assignment based so you don't need to worry about any exams!
People who study this course will go on to train as a teacher in either primary, secondary or further education, but there are also routes into child psychology, childhood studies, child development, social work, special educational needs, early years and learning support degrees.

This course will run part-time over 1 year starting in Autumn 2023. The course provides modules introducing you to topics like physiology, health and disease, mental health, and human growth and development. This course enables you to meet the entry requirements for a range of health-based university courses, which includes Nursing, Physiotherapy, Midwifery, and Paramedic Studies. There has never been a better time to study with us, as Wolverhampton University will be running Nursing degree courses at their campus in Telford, so travelling to university couldn't be easier! They also have Midwifery, Paramedic Studies, Podiatry and Physiotherapy courses on offer.
Nursing and allied health professions degree courses will benefit from a government bursary from September 2020, worth between £5000 and £8000. This makes these degree courses much more affordable when you progress successfully from our Access to HE Diploma (Health Professions) course. You can find more information about the goverment bursary here.
