The course is for adults returning to education and is designed to provide them with the skills knowledge and understanding required for application to the first year of a university degree course or to HNC courses in Science. It is run in partnership with SWAP West who negotiate reserved university places at a range of participating universities for graduates of this and other SWAP courses. The course is accepted by partners in lieu of Highers or other university entry qualifications. As well as covering subject knowledge this course also includes intensive guidance to develop confidence, core skills and teach university survival skills.
Assessment will be continuous with a mixture of practical and theoretical assessments. There is no final examination.
