Join others who have succeeded with University of Worcester
In September 2020, 222 students with Access courses started here. In October 2020, 150 students who started their Access course in September 2016 were awarded degrees- of which 94 gained a First class or 2:1 Honours degree. The University of Worcester welcomes applications from students on the Access to Higher Education Diploma. We will support you in the following ways (your application should fall into one of the following three columns):
| Students applying to non-professional courses which don’t hold interviews|| Students applying to non-professional courses which do hold interviews|| Students applying to professional courses leading directly to a job, such as nursing, midwifery, physiotherapy or teaching|
| We will offer a conditional place on that course or a similar course (this will include the achievement of certain grades and other minimum requirements).
We will either offer an interview or attempt to offer a conditional place on a similar course. If you are rejected after the interview, you can contact Admissions to discuss alternatives.
| We recommend that you attend a taster day (where possible) and Open Day to talk with the staff. Find out the best way to maximise your chances of gaining an interview. Take advantage of any help your college provides on applying for these very competitive courses. Note: you will need relevant work experience before applying so you can discuss it at interview and demonstrate that you have made the right choice of course for you.
How to apply
You need to apply for all courses through UCAS www.ucas.com
There is an official UCAS deadline for applications in January. If you have been unable to decide on which course is best for you, or you miss this deadline, don't worry! There will be a number of courses still taking applications throughout the remainder of the year.
Contact our Admissions Office to find out which ones via 01905 855111 or firstname.lastname@example.org
How to get help
Come to one or more of our Open Events, where you can attend a talk on the subject you are interested in, learn about finances, and speak with someone from the course team to discuss any aspect of the course and find out what they are looking for in your personal statement. You will also be able to meet the Admissions staff who can answer any questions you have about qualifications or entry requirements, or receive pre-entry advice. You can pre-book, or just turn up for part or all of the event.
Your College Tutors and Student Services will provide you with a lot of support to help you decide which is the best course for you and then to apply for that course. They will assist you in preparing your personal statement and also help prepare you for interview (if you have one). Make use of their expertise! Some colleges also invite our staff in to give extra help to Access students.
Our website is a valuable source of information on the courses we offer, the entry requirements, and the content of the course: search for the course pages for any courses you are interested in.
