“I've always had a passion for nursing; undertaking the Access to Higher Education course was naturally the best step to take. The tutors are incredible; one was a registered nurse and uses their wealth of knowledge and experience of the industry to pass onto us. This course has helped me with my time management, self-led learning and is preparing me for the world of work.”

“The location is quiet and local to me, and this course will enable me to be able to go to University and study midwifery. There is a fantastic atmosphere amongst students and staff, with the staff being really supportive.”
