Climbing the ladder of success is now one rung closer as the University of Northampton hosts its first Access to Higher Education open evening.

The Access to Higher Education Diploma is a qualification which prepares people without traditional qualifications for study at university.

Future students who want to start such a course can come along on Wednesday 12 July and meet local college staff to find out more about the course and sign-up for one.

Current Access students who wish to continue their studies at Northampton are also invited, to meet our lecturers and talk about the courses on offer at University of Northampton.

You can also ask questions about what it’s like to study at Northampton, what the workload is like and how flexible courses can be in regards to childcare and part-time working.

Professor Nick Petford, University of Northampton Vice Chancellor, himself studied for an Access Course before enrolling for a degree: “After a shaky start and some forgettable jobs, I enrolled for an Access course that was essentially three science ‘A’ levels condensed into nine months. It was one of the best decisions I’ve made and I haven’t looked back since.

“Our mission at the University of Northampton is transforming lives and inspiring change. My story shows this is more than just fancy words. With our help the same can be true for you too.”

Our open evening starts at 5:30pm on Wednesday 12 July and free child care and refreshments will be provided.

The evening will include an optional tour of ‘Waterside Street’, an instillation about our new Waterside Campus that will open in September 2018.
