Access to Higher Education Advice Café - Event Postponed

We regret that after the recent sad news regarding the passing of Her Majesty The Queen, we will be postponing this event. The event will now take place on Thursday 20th October as part of our Harlow College Open Evening. More details will be released soon.

Access to Higher Education courses are 1 year pre-university courses for adults that prepare you for university. You will study in an adult environment with like-minded people. A typical Access course is 2-3 days a week, 9.30am-3pm.

Many of our Access students are now pursuing new careers and making changes to their lives they never thought possible.

Spaces are still available on our Access to Higher Education courses. Apply now to start in September:

Access to Counselling

Access to Education & Teaching

Access to Health & Social Care

Access to Medicine

Access to Nursing, Midwifery & Health Studies

You can ask us anything! Here are some question pointers and prompts to help you make the most out of your appointment:

  • Studying Functional Skills Maths alongside your Access to Higher Education course
  • Financial support to help pay for your Access to Higher Education course i.e Advanced Learner Loan, Harlow College’s 19+ Learner Bursary 
  • Different modules you will study during your 1 year Access to Higher Education course
  • Financial help with childcare costs and travel
  • Flexible study alongside family and/or work commitments
