Course: Access Diploma in Health and Welfare

Meet Laura, who decided to return to education after 20 years to undertake an Access Diploma as a stepping stone towards University and her dream of becoming a Midwife.

I have been out of education for 20 years and the Access course was the perfect transition to get me used to the demands of it again, and helped prepare me for university.

What is your previous education?

I hold a Degree in Social Psychology and a Masters in Computers and Information Systems.

-----

Why did you decide to study an Access course at NWRC?

I want to become a midwife, but I don't have the required GCSE grade in Science to progress straight to University, so the Access courses at NWRC were a great stepping stone. On reviewing a number of options, the Access Diploma in Health and Welfare stood out as the best suited to meet my requirements and long term goals.

Tell us a bit more about your course

It is an intense, enjoyable course that gives a good, detailed introduction into Anatomy & Physiology, Health & Welfare and Psychology.

It is challenging course and a lot of work is required from you within a short space of time. However, having been out of education for 20 years, it has been the perfect transition to get me used to the demands of it again and helped prepare me for university.

-----

What are your future plans?

Hopefully go on to university to study midwifery.

-----

Would you recommend this course to other students?

Absolutely!
