Access to Higher Education Diploma (Social Sciences and Humanities) and Pre-Access to Higher Education Courses (Social Sciences and Humanities) and (Health) Virtual Open Days

At present we are a virtual college because of Coronavirus but we are hoping that we will be open in September and able to welcome our students to the rich residential learning environment that we have always offered.

Because we are a residential college, we accept applications for our Access to HE Diploma from anywhere in England, not just the Midlands.

Our Pre-Access to Higher Education courses (Social Sciences and Humanities) and (Health), and our Access to Higher Education Diploma (Social Sciences and Humanities) Virtual Open Days start at 11.00 am and will last for one or two hours, depending on how long you want to stay online with us.

Once you have registered to attend a Virtual Open Day we will keep you updated with more details nearer the time and we will send you an online link so that you can join us on the day.

The Virtual Open Days include:

  • An introduction to the Access and Pre-Access to HE courses at Fircroft College
  • Speaking to course tutors online about course content, residential options, funding information and progression opportunities
  • A virtual tour of the college
  • An initial assessment if you want to progress
  • Completing an application form
