Warrington & Vale Royal College expands Access to Higher Education courses to Winsford campus

Warrington & Vale Royal College is excited to announce the expansion of its acclaimed Access to Higher Education (HE) courses to its Winsford campus, opening new doors for adult students in the area and providing an excellent opportunity to gain the qualifications needed for higher level study.

The Access to HE courses are designed for adults without traditional qualifications who aspire to gain a higher level qualification (such as a HTQ or a degree) or change their career. The three pathways offered include: Nursing, Midwifery & Health Professionals, Paramedic Science, and Social Science & Social Work.

Adult students choosing to study at the popular college's Winsford campus will benefit from expert tutors with a wealth of experience to share, industry-influenced facilities such as the campus' new Health & Social Care Academy which is set to launch in September 2024, and strong links with universities and employers.

The courses are structured to accommodate the busy lives of adult students, offering flexibility to balance studying alongside personal and professional commitments. Additionally, financial support is available through government-funded Advanced Learner Loans, which are not required to be repaid if the student goes on to complete a higher education course afterward.

Many past students have successfully transitioned to higher education and rewarding careers, praising the college's supportive learning environment and the robust preparation that the course provides for higher level study.

With the rollout of courses to its Winsford campus, Warrington & Vale Royal College aims to make higher education more accessible to the local community. Enquire or apply online today to take the first step towards a rewarding career!
