Our talented and inspiring teachers offer a range of pathways which enable smooth progression to further studies, including Higher National Certificates or Diplomas, Foundation Degrees, and full degree programmes across a range of disciplines.

And, if the degree programme you’re looking to move onto requires you to have had a vocationally related work placement, we’ll help you find it.

Our students will also have access to financial* and wellbeing advice and support from the very beginning.

*Subject to eligibility

Learn more about the support available.

We know it’s important to our students that the course they’re studying makes sense for their current lifestyle and financial obligations, as well as their future plans.

Take a look at the information about the funding available.

  • Advanced Learner Loans are also available to students aged 19 in England
  • If you are aged 19 or over, you may be expected to pay full fees. However, you will able to apply for a loan under the Government’s Advanced Learning Loans scheme to cover the cost of these fees
  • These loan repayments will be expected to start once you earn over £21,000 per year. But if you complete a QAA-recognised Access to Higher Education course, and then go onto complete a degree (or other recognised Higher Education course) you won’t have to repay the remaining loan for the Access to Higher Education course. Which means the loan you originally took out will be written off

Learn more about Advanced Learning Loans.

If you want to talk to us a bit more about this and find out how it would work for you, please get in touch with our team at bursary@ccsw.ac.uk for impartial information and advice.

Access to Higher Education - Applied Science pathway

“I decided to enrol on the Access to HE course as I didn’t have suitable qualifications to gain entry on to a Higher Education course. The course has been amazing and the teachers have been the best. I was scared at first but, with all the support I’ve had, I’m now going to the University of Chester to study a BA (Hons) Degree in Chemistry. Eventually I hope to become a high school Chemistry Teacher. ”
