However, we appreciate that it is a big step for you to take, and that you’ll have lots of questions that you’ll want to discuss with us. We’re here to help, so please do get in touch.

Our Mature Students and Access courses pages contain lots of information and, importantly, a point of contact to talk things through with you.
