Students wishing to study Humanities at university will find that this course not only does the trick, but goes quite a lot further. Taught across a range of subjects, students join their peers in Social Sciences and Teacher Training to study core subjects that range from Critical Thinking, English Literature and History to Media Studies, Film Studies and the Creative Arts.
As with all Access courses, the accent is on the development of your confident ability to study independently, and the three terms will prove an absorbing experience. Students following this course will be able to apply to local and national HE providers with confidence: past students have been accepted by Canterbury, Bournemouth, Sussex, Leeds, Exeter, Brighton and Chichester University College, to name but a few.

Are there any extra costs?
Commencing in 2014, Access courses nationally will have been re-shaped to better reflect the key aims of the educational pathways studied. At Sussex Coast College, our provision will not alter fundamentally, but may be re-named. If in doubt, ask! Additionally, prospective applicants for Access should now expect to find that from October 2014 entry requirements to HE at national level include English and Maths GCSE at grade C (and Science for Education Studies). If you do not have these grades, or if you need to re-sit, it is advisable that you attain that grade before entry to Access.
