Nursing Access to Higher Education course is specifically designed to help you gain access to nursing courses at higher education level. You will study a range of nursing topics, including nursing studies, health sciences (including biology), psychology and sociology.
You will also learn key presentation skills, seminar skills and writing skills that will be crucial at university level. Throughout the course you will undertake a research project and participate in lessons aimed at preparing you for higher education, helping you focus on developing your academic, literacy and examination skills.
From September 2020, degree-level nursing and midwifery students will have access to an annual grant of between £5,000 to £8,000, to help with living costs – the grant is not means-tested and will not need to be repaid.
