This course has been designed specifically for mature students who do not have the relevant qualifications for entry to higher education.
You will attend college four days a week between 9.30 and 3.30.
You will be assigned a personal tutor who will support you with studies and personal development.
Good time-management skills are necessary as assessment of the course is on an on-going basis.
The curriculum is structured so that core units are delivered together with the cohorts of the other Access courses in the college. The specialist engineering units are delivered to the engineering students separately and may be taught alongside engineering students on other courses in the college. There are weekly tutorials where one to ones take place and you set your own targets for the development of specific skills and knowledge, including completion of the UCAS process. All resources, assignments are available on the Google Classrooms for your use and specific resources for eLearning sessions are updated weekly.
This course includes the following units:
You should have a minimum of GCSE English and Maths at grade C or above. You will also be invited for an Advice & Guidance interview with the tutor.
If you do not meet the entry requirements, we would advise you to consider enrolling on our Pre-Access to Higher Education course and the IGCSE English Language.
Your work will be assessed
by presentations, discussion, tests, projects, essays, leaflets, posters, e
learning and a research project. (Any unit with more than one assessment will
use different methods to
ensure variety and enable you to present information and learning in
Successful completion of this course would allow you to progress on to the HNC/D in Engineering - either Electrical/Electronic or Mechanical/Manufacturing - at BCoT. (The HND at BCoT will allow you to complete a one year 'top up' at Southampton Solent University to achieve your full BSc Engineering degree).
You could also choose to apply direct to a University to study engineering or a related degree subject; please check with individual Admissions Tutors if you have a specific university in mind.
Full time applications are open for 2018/19
