Through the Scottish Wider Access Programme (SWAP), we provide proven routes to degree courses at Scottish universities. This course is also a pathway to a variety of HNC courses, or for topping up existing qualifications to meet the minimum entry criteria for university applications.

Alongside the course units, learners can access valuable volunteering opportunities through the college’s Learner Engagement Team. Guidance and assistance with UCAS applications are also available to help learners progress.
The suitability of all applicants will be assessed through interview and tests (e.g. written exercise and mathematics/numeracy tests). A detailed personal statement and satisfactory reference are mandatory.
If applying as a SWAP eligible applicant, this course requires you to have been out of full-time education for 3 years (if highest level of study is SCQF level 5) or for 5 years (if highest level of study is SCQF level 6 or above).
