Step Up to Higher Education

Looking to return to education but are worried you don't have the right skills and qualifications? Our Step Up to Higher Education (HE) course is designed to help you figure out where you want to be and point you in the right direction to get there. This free 10-week course can fit around your work or other commitments to give you a taste of what it's like to study at university.  

You don't necessarily need formal qualifications to apply, and many who complete the course go on to foundation or degree-level programmes. The course can help you to get advice if you're looking for a career change or want to move up the job ladder, develop your academic writing, referencing, note-taking and critical thinking skills that you will need for a higher education course, and get support around Student Finance and application processes.
