It is designed for those who have not achieved the required number of A-level points (A2 or their equivalent) or for those who have studied A-level subjects (or their equivalent) in areas that do not provide the necessary background in the disciplines of the intended pathways (HND or degree).
This course is also intended to widen access and participation for 'return to learning' students who wish to enter higher education.
