Course Introduction

This course is designed to prepare students without traditional qualifications for degree'level study. It's an excellent way to get a real taste of a range of social sciences and humanities subjects, (including: health and social care, social policy, social work, education, criminology; media; journalism; and community development) before deciding at the end of your first year which of these areas you'd like to study at a higher level. Our teachers will focus on improving your academic and study skills, on boosting your confidence and unlocking your potential for further study. Added value: This is an excellent way to gain experience of different subject areas if you're unclear about the path you'd like to follow at degree level.
