As the majority of our Access students are returning to learning as adults, we consider a range of experience when accepting students onto an Access programme. All students will be assessed to see what level they are learning at, particularly the level of English and maths skills, as these will be key to success whilst on a programme at Nottingham College. Your experience and level of study will be assessed at interview and this will determine your offer of a place at College.

You’ll need 5 GCSEs at grades 9–4 (A*–C) including English and Maths (equivalents may be considered).

It is not possible to study both GCSE English and Maths on this course.

Assessment

You will compile a portfolio of evidence of your work.

Progression

You can go on to degree level study in law or a law related subject. Possible degrees include Criminology or Policing studies as well as degree apprenticeships with the Police force.
