A new cohort of Access to HE students is embarking on an intensive year course in preparation for Higher Education at North Shropshire College (NSC). In addition to the ever popular Health route for those wanting to enter Nursing, Midwifery and Paramedicine, students are also aiming to progress to a wide variety of degrees through our new Science and Humanities Diplomas. Humanities students are applying for Primary Teaching, English, Creative Writing and Media whilst Science students are heading for courses as diverse as Physiotherapy, Biomedical Sciences, Astrophysics, Zoology and Environmental Sciences.
A new Access to HE qualification is now available at NSC’s Walford Campus, the Land-Based Studies Access to HE Diploma is ideal for anyone wanting to do study Countryside Management, Land Management, Agriculture and Environmental studies.
Jill Cawthray Access Coordinator commented ‘the Access to HE course is a fantastic bridge to University for those who may not have got the necessary qualifications previously. The best part of my job is seeing the confidence and skills of our students grow with the support of their tutors and peers. We wish them a very successful year. If you want to apply to Access please see our college web-site for more details.’
There is an open evening at Oswestry Campus on Saturday 19th October, 5pm until 8pm, open to all prospective students wishing to join in September 2017.
