University of East London

Course Introduction

If you would like to study for a degree but do not have the qualifications required to enter directly into Level 1 of a three year degree programme, or you are undecided which programme of study you wish to join, then the Extended Humanities programme offers you an alternative route into Higher Education. This extra year of study, a Level 0, prepares you for degree level study and has been carefully designed to support and motivate you as well as build your self'confidence. The programme is aimed at: Applicants with the motivation, determination and potential to succeed in their studies; Mature applicants who lack formal qualifications; Those who have experienced interruptions in their education particularly in the last year of A2 study, for example through illness; Those who do not wish to return to FE to retake A'levels or undertake an Access course; Those who may have studied in a vocational context and require fuller academic development before progressing to an academic course. The programme will help you to adjust to an academic culture and understand what is expected of students who are studying for a degree.
