Would you like to study a Degree at University but did not have previous opportunity?

Then an Access Course may just be what you need to take that first step!

These special information sessions are designed particularly for school leavers and mature students, who never had the opportunity to study at third level and could not for a diverse range of reasons perform to their full potential academically. It is aimed primarily at those on a low income and/or who have long-term disabilities.   It is an annual event to reach out to community that university is accessible to all and particularly to those who thought college was out of their reach. These courses build confidence in self, ability and supports each individual to reach their full potential.

Representatives and past students from our Access Office will be there to advise and talk with you on the Access Diploma Programmes and to support you in deciding to take that first step into education and to encourage you to reach your full potential.
