“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.”Bethany Smith Access to HE: Health Science Professions
